MIDHURST Rother College students are celebrating another bumper crop of A level results.
It was a case of hooray-levels as excited students jumped for joy, receiving the results they need to get to university.
A quarter of A Level entries resulted in A* and A grades, maintaining the high standard achieved in 2013, and some 45 per cent of A Level entries were graded A*-B, with 64 per cent of grades at A*-C.
There were some excellent individual results, including Ashley Baker, 18, who got an impressive A, B and C and will now go to the Royal Veterinary College in London to study veterinary medicine.
Jack Benham, 18, who got A*, A and B and is going to the University of Manchester to study for a degree in mathematics.
Simon Dennis, 18, got an A*, A and two B’s and is set to study chemistry at the University of Bath.
Catriona Gibbon, 18, was delighted with two A’s and two B’s and will now go to the University of Southampton to study chemistry and mathematics.
Her friend Caroline Miller, 19, got four fantastic grades - A*, A*, A, A, and will go to the University of York in September to read mathematics and philosophy.
Talented young photographer Oliver van Zwanenberg got an A* and two B’s and is going to the University of Westminster to study photography.
Dr Joe Vitagliano, Principal of Midhurst Rother College, said: “Each year A Level examinations seem to become more demanding, however in the face of such challenge Midhurst Rother College has maintained its high standards.
“This year a number of our students have secured places at top universities, including those in the Russell Group. This strategy, begun when the College became an academy, is now bearing fruit and shows even greater promise for the future.
“I am always humbled by how hard students have worked to achieve their grades; such results are a just reward for their effort and dedication. I wish them all well in the future.
“With increasing numbers joining the college’s sixth form, this year’s results should give new students joining MRC the confidence to know that with their hard work and the college’s extensive support they can go on to get outstanding examination grades and the best university places.”
