Of all the A-Level subjects, 20 out of 25 recorded 100 per cent pass rate, the college has confirmed.

Students have achieved a 43 per cent A* to B pass rate.

Helen Loftus, Principal (Interim) at Chichester College, said: “We are incredibly proud of all our students, who have worked hard to achieve their grades.

“This year has been highly unusual, and I think it’s important to recognise the effort and determination they have shown to their studies.

“We should also acknowledge the dedication shown by their lecturers during exceptionally difficult circumstances.

“They have gone above and beyond to support their students, the vast majority of whom will be able to progress to the next stage of their educational journey with confidence.

“We are also supporting students whose grades may have been slightly lower than expected.

“Our focus is always on helping young people to find the best way forward for them – this year is no exception.

“If anything, the extraordinary circumstances of the last few months make that approach all the more important.

“We also have to consider that, given the unique nature of this year’s assessment process and following the Government’s announcement on Tuesday night regarding mock results, our pass rates should be considered provisional and we could see an increase following any recalculations.”

Worthing College – who, alongside Chichester, Crawley and Brinsbury Colleges, are part of the Chichester College Group – has also achieved a 99 per cent pass rate A-level results for 2020.
