Oldham Sixth Form College is celebrating after another year of outstanding examination results, with an overall Advanced level pass rate of over 98%. An impressive 38 subjects gained a perfect 100% pass rate, with almost 700 A* or A grades achieved. Additionally 5 students are celebrating today having secured their places at the prestigious Oxbridge universities. In 2015 around a third of students achieved the ABB or equivalent at A level, the ‘gold standard’ required by the ‘Russell Group’ universities.
There was a superb 100% pass rate by students completing vocational subjects, with 414 students receiving a Distinction or Distinction* grade, the equivalent of an A grade.
Jayne Clarke, OSFC Principal, said
“It’s fantastic to see another set of outstanding results achieved by our students who have worked incredibly hard during their time at OSFC. On both our A level and vocational programmes, we have really excellent results to celebrate. I’d like to wish all our students the very best of luck as they progress to university, training or employment. I’d also like to thank our hard-working and supportive staff who have helped students achieve these outcomes. As ever, I’m very proud of what we achieve at OSFC.”
Congratulations to Samuel Leonard (first on the right) who has surpassed all of his expectations and achieved A B B in his A Levels. He was ecstatic to discover that his results were better than he had hoped for and has and has decided to adjust his University place accordingly. He will now be going to Lancaster University to study Business.
Callum Corcoran (middle) has also been accepted to the Lancaster University. He will be studying Politics and Economics. Perhaps we have a future Prime Minister in our midst?
Courtney Graves (left) has been beaconed towards the bright lights of London after receiving her phenomenal grades! She achieved A* A A A and is excited to start her History degree at King’s College London. She told us that she was so happy with her results that she cried!
Congratulations to Alex Dobson on his exceptional A level Results. He achieved A*A*A and is moving down south to continue his academic career at Oxford University studing history. He plans to celebrate by going to Leeds festival in the summer before the hard work commences again in September. Good luck Alex!
We are very proud of our star student Mohammed Raza Ali who is starting a degree in medicine at the University of Manchester. He has wanted to be a doctor for as long as he can remember and today his results have helped him realise that dream. He will be joining the largest medical school in the UK and within a few weeks of starting his studies he will be meeting patients in the community and in teaching hospitals. It’s a big challenge but we know it is one Mohammed is up to! Especially considering his hard working mentality and his sound rapport with teachers and fellow students at the sixth form college! Well done and best of luck.
Jamie Jones (right) and Rachel Kilburn (left) are both opting for the hills and greenery of the University of Sheffield! They have performed tremendously in their exams and have managed to secure their places at this prestigious Russel group university. Both students will start a law degree in September in preparation for legal careers. We are sure they will be hammering their gavel shouting “ORDER…ORDER” in no time at all.
Best friends Melissa Beardmore and Freya Redrup were celebrating today when they both secured places at University. They were beaming with pride at each other’s’ achievements. Freya is off to Lancaster University to study English Language where she will study all about grammar, phonetics and how to research language. Melissa is heading to Leeds University to study History where she will study how the modern world which we live in came to be by analysing how we understand the past helps shape our future.
