99% Pass Rate for Top Courses

Students receiving their results this Summer are delighted with their results, with an impressive 99% pass rate for our Level 3 BTEC students – who make up the biggest group of students at the College.

T Levels – the latest qualifications

Our T Level students have seen great success with an impressive 92% pass rate. These results show that our students are serious about their studies and are in a great position to launch their careers with these new industry-led qualifications.

Our newest students completing their first year in T Level Construction class saw a 100% pass rate which is particularly reassuring for this course, which combines theory with practical work.

BTEC Success

Students on our Level 3 BTEC courses – which are equivalent to three A Levels – achieved an incredible 99% pass rate. 30% of these students got top grades (Distinction to D*D*D*), and 61% got excellent grades of Merit to D*D*D*.

A Level Accomplishments

Our A Level students have also shown they’re excelling. In Photography, Business Studies, English, History, and Sociology, we saw a 100% pass rate.

In Physics and Psychology, a large number of students passed too – 88% and 87%, respectively.

GCSEs

Students taking their GCSEs with us were delighted with their results, especially given the fact that they were re-sitting them after being unsatisfied with their original results. Both School Leavers and Mature students re-sat their exams and shared their experiences with us:

Keith Dibble, aged 68, accomplished a grade 7 in English language.

He said, “‘Despite my familiarity with participating in board meetings and similar engagements, the prospect of returning to the classroom after more than five decades was undeniably daunting. Nevertheless, the supportive environment helped alleviate my apprehensions.”

Finlay achieved a brilliant grade 6 for maths, and grade 8 for English. He is delighted to be progressing into a level 3 music course with us now.

Ristu re-sat two exams and received an amazing grade 8 in maths, and 7 in English. After her Level 2 Health and Social Care course, she’ll be joining an Access to Higher Education programme and joining university.

Caz resat maths and came out with a grade 4 in maths. She will now be looking to start her career working with animals.

Principal CEO Virginia Barrett said:

“As we celebrate the end of this summer’s academic journey for our students, it’s worth noting that for many, these examinations marked a significant milestone, being their first encounter with formal exams. These young people are role models to future learners and therefore their commendable success will inspire our next cohort of learners to build on their success.

“Year after year, our students join diverse pathways, branching into various destinations, including local employment and universities up and down the country. With heartfelt pride, I extend my best wishes to all our students, as they embark on their next steps. I look forward to welcoming back those who choose to stay at Farnborough for their degree or apprenticeship this September.”

Following the results season, the College has also been supporting GCSE students from local schools. School Leavers Advice Sessions are being held at the College to help students find the right course for their grades, whether they are better than expected or come with a few surprises.
