A Level results 2011
The 2011 A Level results are encouraging in many areas. The A-E rate was 100% and the A-C rate was 65%, an improvement of 17%. The average point score per student was 266, from 211 last year (UCAS point system).
Students at the top end performed particularly well. The number of students achieving A*-A grades was well above target. The highest performing A Level students were Benni Durias (A*AB), Elena Brake (A*AB), Laura Gould (A*AB), Polly Budden (AAB), Charlie Sweetland (AAB), Natalie Callaghan (ABB) and Josie Bruton (BBB). The highest performing vocational students included Distinctions for Alice Forino, Bryony Garrett, Emma Pickett and Chrissy Squire and Sam Turner Tom Vincent Nathan Womersley each gaining a Distinction and Merit.
We are delighted with the results. Our pass rate was 100% with a significant improvement in the A to C pass rate up to 65%. Many students have performed superbly and we are very proud of their achievements. Our most able students achieved more A*s to B grades than we had predicted and many of these students are going to top universities. Special mention must be paid to our Maths Department who achieved a 100% A* to B pass rate. Our vocational courses, usually offered to less academic students, achieved truly excellent results and again many of these students are set to continue their studies in Higher Education.
We now see our strategies for student academic improvement achieving end results and these strategies will enable future year groups to perform even better.
We would like to wish our Year 13 leavers good luck for the future, whether that be at university, training or employment. I would like to thank all of the Axe Valley staff for their tremendous hard work in supporting Year 13.
