Reigate College students will have been up early this morning to receive their eagerly awaited results by email.
In-line with previous years, these have once again been tremendous, with all but a handful of students having secured places at their first-choice universities.
For A Level, 67.4% of students received high grades (A* to B), with a 99% pass rate.
For BTEC, 68% of students received high grades (Distinction*/Distinction). This figure will be well above the national average and is particularly encouraging since students are now required to sit externally assessed exams, bringing the BTEC courses even further in-line with A Levels.
Nick Clark, Principal of Reigate College commented, “I’m so proud of what our students have achieved. These are outstanding results, following a similar trajectory to previous cohorts, despite incredibly challenging circumstances. I would like to thank all our Upper Sixth leavers, together with their teachers and support staff for digging into their reserves of both resilience and determination to achieve the best possible outcomes.”
