2018 A level Exam Success

The Sixth Form College, Solihull is celebrating hundreds of starred grades, as A level results were announced nationwide today. The College, which is part of the Ninestiles Academy Trust, has achieved an impressive 394 starred grades (A* at A level and Distinction* at BTEC level).

Hundreds of students are looking forward to their future careers thanks to their success, with 177 of our students having achieved all top grades at advanced level (A/A* at A Level or BTEC Distinction/Distinction*). In addition, 459 students achieved all A*-C grades at A level or Merit and above at BTEC. 20 advanced level courses have achieved a 100% pass rate, with success also achieved on BTEC courses, the results of which were confirmed last month.

College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:

“Congratulations to both the students and staff for their hard work over the last two years. Those that have achieved the very top grades have done so because of their dedication, support from their teachers and their commitment to independent study. These high achievers are among the best students in the country and can look forward to progressing to some of the top universities in the country on a range of highly competitive courses.”

The majority of students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull choose to progress to university and they are progressing to study a huge variety of subjects, from Law and Medicine to Architecture and Engineering and many more. Three students (plus a former student taking deferred entry) have confirmed their progression to Oxbridge. Martin Sullivan is especially pleased to see the high level of support the College has given these students paying off.

“Applying to Oxford or Cambridge is a massive challenge; these students are pitting themselves against some of the top minds not only in the UK, but from around the world. To get an offer is an achievement in itself, but they then faced the pressure of achieving the required grades. I’m delighted that we have three successful applicants this year.”
