Miles of smiles as teenagers make the grade for uni

Macclesfield Express - - A-LEVEL RESULTS -

IT was smiles all round as stu­dents at Mac­cles­field Col­lege col­lected their A-level re­sults.

The col­lege was cel­e­brat­ing too as this year’s re­sults were even bet­ter than the last aca­demic year, with the col­lege achiev­ing a 97 per cent pass rate and 15 sub­jects suc­cess­fully gain­ing pass rates of 100pc.

Among the many happy stu­dents was 18- year-old Abi­gail Luke from Mac­cles­field, who achieved A*, A, B and is now plan­ning to head to Sheffield Univer­sity to study a de­gree in History.

Her friend Rachel Snow­don was also ex­cited af­ter re­ceiv­ing the grades she needed to get into Sheffield Hal­lam Univer­sity.

Ryan True­man, 20, was equally over the moon to have se­cured a place at the pres­ti­gious Royal Vet­eri­nary Col­lege in Lon­don to study Bi­o­log­i­cal Sciences, and 18-year-old twins An­gus and Cameron Cooper were also dou­bly de­lighted – An­gus picked up his AS re­sults and is con­tin­u­ing at Mac­cles­field Col­lege next year to com­plete his A-lev­els while brother Cameron gained the A-level grades re­quired to get into a course at the BIMM (Bri­tish and Ir­ish Mod­ern Mu­sic) In­sti­tute in Manch­ester.

Pam Ab­bot­son, Mac­cles­field Col­lege’s head of Cross Col­lege Cur­ricu­lum, said: “We are pleased to see our stu­dents have been re­warded for the ef­fort and com­mit­ment they have put into their stud­ies this year.

“The with­drawal of the mid-year ex­ams that pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for in-year re­sits has added an ex­tra pres­sure to an al­ready de­mand­ing pro­gramme.

“Our stu­dents and staff have em­braced the chal­lenge and have even im­proved on our pass rate from last year.

“Thank you to all staff in­volved with our A-level pro­gramme and con­grat­u­la­tions to all our stu­dents who will be mov­ing on to univer­sity or into their cho­sen ca­reers – the col­lege wishes you con­tin­ued suc­cess.”

Con­grat­u­la­tions also go to all of Mac­cles­field Col­lege’s stu­dents on vo­ca­tional cour­ses who have known the re­sults of their BTEC and NVQ cour­ses for sev­eral weeks and have also se­cured places at univer­sity, or moved into ca­reers and ap­pren­tice­ships, or will be stay­ing on at the col­lege to study de­gree-level cour­ses.
