100% Success for A Levels

We’re celebrating another successful cohort of students following the announcement of this year’s A Level exam results.

Our A Level students achieved 75% A*-C pass rate, with a 100% pass rate overall!

Principal, Virginia Barrett, said “We are delighted with the achievements of our A Level students.  They are especially pleasing because our A Level provision is not exclusive.

 

“These results are of course well deserved, and reflect the hard work that our students have put in to their studies. It’s great to see so many students fulfilling their potential, and we are very proud of their achievements.

“The College continues to set high standards, and these achievements would not have been possible without our highly dedicated staff who motivate and inspire our inclusive student body with exceptional education and support.

“We want to wish all of our students the very best of luck in their future lives and look forward to hearing of their successes.”

Students were able to share their future plans with their tutors today, and pick up their exam results. Many students are now looking forward to going to study their degrees at various institutions across the country.

Amy gained one A* in English Language and Literature and two A’s in History and Law, and is off to the University of Warwick to study Law

“I absolutely loved my time studying A Levels here at Farnborough College, and I’m very, very happy with my grades!”


Katie received an A* in Media, A in Psychology, and B in Biology. She’s accepted a place to study Film at the University of Bournemouth

“During my time at college I was off for 8 weeks as I was seriously ill, and my teachers were there for me throughout. They decided that I should come back on a phased scheme to ease me back in to college life, and sent me homework and lesson plans so that I wouldn’t fall behind.

“I’m now planning on taking a gap year before going to University.”


James achieved 3 A’s in Chemistry, Maths, and Physics, and is heading to the University of Nottingham to study Physics

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here at Farnborough College, and I’m really happy with my grades! The teachers valued us, treated us as individuals, and they tailored their support to each person, which really helped throughout my A Levels here.”


Caitlin, who received two A’s in Psychology and Sociology and a D in Biology, is off to Royal Holloway, University of London

“My teachers are always there for you, they really care about us, and the smaller classes meant that they got to know us better.”


Gabbie gained an A in Sociology, B in Law, a D in English, and an A in her Philosophy AS this year, and has accepted a place at Nottingham Trent University to study Law

“I really enjoyed studying my A Levels here. The teachers were so supportive – If I ever became overwhelmed with the workload or the fear that I wouldn’t pass, my teachers were always there for me to support and calm me.

Now I’m going to study at my first choice university!


Tom achieved three C’s, and is going to the University of Winchester to study Geography

“I’m really happy with my grades. I really enjoyed studying my A Levels here, it’s really good – the people and all the teachers are so friendly, and you get one on one support!”


Lucy gained three B’s in Biology, Chemistry, and History, and has accepted a place at the University of Kent to study Biology

“My A Levels were so much fun, and I’ve loved every second of it, even the stressful parts! When you’re at Farnborough College you become much more of an individual who people know well rather than one of a crowd, and it’s great to have such enthusiastic teachers who definitely wanted to teach you.”


Natasha finished with two B’s in Business and Sociology, and a D in English. She’s now deciding between applying for an Apprenticeship, or a Degree

“I didn’t think I’d do so well at my A Levels! The college made sure we knew that we didn’t have to go to University, and that there were other options, so I’m starting to think of what to do next.”


Sapphire obtained two B’s in Biology and Chemistry, and a C in Maths. She’s heading to the University of Nottingham to study Food Science

“I’ve really enjoyed my A Levels, and I don’t think I would have been able to get where I am without my teachers, especially my Chemistry teacher, who wasn’t just an amazing teacher, but also provided the emotional support that I needed.”


Our Adult Access to Higher Education students have also received great news on their journey to university, especially for students Emma and Rosemary who are now looking forward to starting at the University of Cambridge.

It’s not too late to apply to study an A Level course at Farnborough College of Technology for this September.

If you’d like to study a BTEC alongside your A Level, we also offer combined courses. For more information, please click here.

For all students at Farnborough and beyond receiving their A Level results, Degree places are still available at University Centre Farnborough via Clearing or online. More information about our courses can be found here.
