A Level Results 2014
Elizabeth College pupils achieved very pleasing results at A level this year. The overall pass rate was 99% and 83% of grades have been achieved at A* to C. The average UCAS (university entry) points score per candidate was 326 which is the equivalent of ABB at A level.
There were some particularly outstanding individual successes at the top end with Head Boy Jack Miller achieving three A*s in Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. A further two students gained two A*s and almost a quarter of students achieving at least one A* grade.
Early indications suggest that the value-added performance of most pupils has been very positive, with one student, Mathew Beck, achieving six grades higher than predicted allowing him to read medicine at Buckingham University.
Nearly all Elizabeth College students who applied to university have already had their places confirmed, including places at Oxford, Durham, UCL, Warwick and Southampton. A number of other students have successfully gained employment in various sectors on the island.
Principal George Hartley says “I am very pleased with these results, particularly given the continued downward pressure from the UK government on top grades. Although it’s fair to say it was not one of our strongest academic year groups overall, the majority of pupils have exceeded expectations and laid the foundations for highly successful futures. Alongside such qualifications, all the leavers have benefitted greatly from the very broad education we provide and will be looking forward to their adult careers as happy, confident and strongly motivated individuals.”
