Reigate College students secure another excellent set of results

A Level students from Reigate College were celebrating today as they received their results. At A Level the pass rate was up from last year to 99.2%.

The College’s BTEC National results are now officially among the top in the country with a 100% pass rate. An incredible 97.5% of the Diploma grades (two A Level equivalents) were high grades (Distinctions or Distinction*). In addition, 88.3% of Subsidiary Diploma grades (one A Level equivalent) were high grades.

Principal Nick Clark commented, “We’re very proud of all of our students, who’ve achieved tremendous results, despite the significant changes to the A Level exams. They’ve all been rewarded for their hard work, with so many now moving onto their first choice universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

With so many students achieving at the highest possible level it’s difficult to single out individuals.
