A Level Exam Report 2018

August 16, 2018

A Level pupils at Bradfield College have returned a very strong set of results following the excellent IB results which were announced earlier this summer. Overall, 76% of grades achieved were A*-B, with 41% either an A* or A (with IBDP Higher Tier results included). Special mention goes to Georgie Cockburn who joins Elias Tenhula and Livi Lee-Smith in confirming her place at Oxford. Georgie, along with Quinn McCallion, secured 3A*s in her A Levels and Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). In total, 28% of this cohort achieved grades of AAB or better, which is an excellent achievement in light of the recent qualification reforms.

We are delighted to report that the overwhelming majority of the pupils have made it into their first choice university. Once again, a number of Bradfieldians are headed overseas to continue their studies having taken up offers in North America and mainland Europe. Two pupils (a number that we will likely see grow significantly in years to come) look forward to beginning their respective apprenticeships; one at PWC accountancy and the other at GCI technology.

Headmaster, Dr Chris Stevens, said, “I am delighted for the pupils and staff who have worked so hard over the past twelve months. These results are testament to the diligence of our pupils and the skill of their teachers and support staff. Reformed A Levels represent a stiffer academic challenge than their predecessors. I am particularly impressed therefore with these results and wish the pupils well as they move on to new things.”
