There was great relief at Chichester College today as students arrived to collect their A-level results.
The college saw an increase of seven per cent in students gaining A*-C grades this year.
There was also an impressive 22 subjects achieving rates of 100 per cent, including notoriously hard subjects such as Physics, Biology, Economics, Geography, French and Spanish.
The overall pass rate for A-levels was 97 per cent, with 79 per cent gaining A*-C passes.
Assistant principal for student success Vicki Illingworth, said: “We are extremely proud of our students and the hard work they have put into their studies to achieve such great success.
“Our students are looking forward to taking up their university places and celebrating their results with friends and family.
“We are very pleased for them and delighted that Chichester College continues to help students achieve their potential.”
This year the college offered a new qualification to top students, the AQA Baccalaureate.
This gave talented students an additional opportunity to distinguish themselves from their peers in the bid for highly sought after university places.
To gain this qualification as well as A-levels, students had to complete an extended research project. 100 per cent of the students who took the AQA Baccalaureate project passed, with 84 per cent achieving an A*-B grade.
