This year’s cohort of A Level pupils at Dover College have once again produced some excellent results. Overall, the College’s Year 13 leavers achieved 33% A* to A grade, and 74% A* to C grade, producing an average University points per candidate of 318. From these results our pupils have been accepted into Universities across the world, studying a variety of subjects.
Although the results across all subjects were excellent, there were record results in French, Spanish, History, Photography and Mathematics. Individual stories abound, and there was particular delight in Valery Tsmiashenka’s 4 A* grades, and Laura Carnachan’s 3 A* and an A grade.
The College provides a wide range of vocational BTEC courses which are taught alongside traditional A Levels. These have produced some great results, most specifically in Business, Travel and Tourism, Sport and ICT, with 91% of pupils achieving a Distinction * to Merit, which is equivalent to A* to C, and 50% achieving the equivalent of A*/A.
The Headmaster, Gareth Doodes, was delighted. ‘In a particularly volatile exam season due to a number of changes in syllabuses and exam structures, I am very pleased with what the pupils have achieved. It demonstrates that hard work really does pay off, and that the College’s environment encourages high achieving pupils to reach their potential. I am extremely proud of them all’.
