The Parmiter’s School in Garston is pleased with A level results, which led to a number of students gaining their place at Oxford and Cambridge universities.
The grades, which have been finalised by the examination bodies, recognise the considerable strengths of this cohort with 27 per cent of grades being A*, 55 per cent at A*/A and 83 per cent at A*/A/B.
A spokesperson from the school said: “Congratulations go to all the staff and students whose huge efforts and commitment to their A Level study programmes have led to such an excellent set of results this year.”
The majority of students attained their first choice of university.
The statement continued: “The excellent results have led to a record number of students gaining their places in either Oxford and Cambridge as well as the overwhelming majority of students attaining their first choice of university. We are so proud that the patience and forbearance of our students has been repaid with such wonderful outcomes.
“Once results have been finalised we will be publishing a full statistical summary of the A Levels this year.”
After the exams were cancelled due to the coronavirus, students were graded following a controversial algorithm, which downgraded more than 200.000 A levels results according to the Office for Qualifications and Exam Regulation (Ofqual).
After numerous protests, led by disappointed students, the government made a U-turn decision, meaning A-levels and GCSE’s results would be based on teachers’ predictions.
