A huge increase in A* grades for RGS A Level students

 

Another record A Level year for RGS students. Almost 30% of all grades were A*s and there were more A* and A grades than all other grades put together. The average grade profile of an RGS student again this year is 3 As at A Level.

New records have been set by A Level students at RGS this year with A*s accounting for almost 30 percent of all grades achieved and more A*-A grades awarded than all other grades put together. The typical Reigatian achieved 3 A grades: these exam successes will open doors of opportunity, securing them places at top universities so they can go on to achieve their life aspirations and fulfilling careers.

For the fifth year in a row, 90 percent of grades were A*-B, which places RGS in the premier league for exam results! For the 19th year in a row the pass rate was 100% with most subjects gaining 100% A*-B grades.

Twelve students achieved straight A*s. Well done to Connie BS, Olivia B, Ella-Mae G, Laura H, Luca K, Eleanor M, Daniel M, Leo N, Benedict S, Milo S, Megan S and Isabel W. It was another successful year for Oxbridge applicants and a record number of students have secured places at medical school. Other top university destinations include Durham, Bristol and Bath.

Headmaster, Shaun Fenton, said:

I am so proud of these super young people. These record breaking top grades open doors of opportunity, but A Level results do not define these young people and they leave with commendable qualities of character, great friends and lifelong memories. They move on from RGS to the best universities ready to make the world a better place.

The overall results for RGS are once again outstanding but what is most notable is that they have been achieved by students who have not only been focussed on their academics, but are also active on the sports field, performing in musical concerts and drama productions, engaging in Duke of Edinburgh and CCF and debating worldwide issues in MUN conferences, all through RGS’s extensive extra-curricular programme.
