Pass rates and high grades up on previous years’ strong results at OSFC 1

Staff and students at OSFC are celebrating superb A level results today. There were impressive increases on the strong results in recent years, with an A level pass rate of 99% and a 2% improvement in high grades. Similarly at AS level, both the pass rate and the high grades rates are up on previous years, which is particularly pleasing in the context of volatility and reform in several subjects. This had created uncertainty nationally and predictions of declining outcomes.
