Success for A Level learners at SGS

SGS College’s A Level Campus was filled with smiling students, Thursday 17 August, as hundreds of learners came into college to collect their A Level results following two years of hard work. 

As in previous years, the College’s A-Level students achieved excellent grades. 50% of students studying Maths and Further Maths achieved an A* / A / B. Over 60% of students achieved A - C grades with excellent performance in many subjects, notably Psychology (75% A - C), Physics (75% A - C) and Law (71% A - C). Just under 2% of students achieved the highest mark, (A*). 

One such student collecting his results was 19-year-old Jack Bromfield from Bristol, who has been studying at SGS for three years.

Speaking of his experience Jack said: “In my first year studying AS Levels, I chose to study four subjects, two of which I didn’t particularly have an interest in. Inevitably I had a tough time with these subjects so decided to start fresh the following year, only choosing subjects I was interested in.

“My family were very supportive of my decision to start over. For me, it was the right thing to do.

“My second year studying History, Film Studies and Business was far more successful. I truly enjoyed the lessons and the learning came naturally. Now after my third year I have the grades I need to go to university to study history.”

“19-year-old Yusuf Hussien was also collecting results, and was delighted to discover that he had the grades he need to go to university to study Genetics.

“Speaking of his journey Yusuf said: “I didn’t realise there would be such a difference between GCSEs and A Levels. To me, it came as quite a shock, So I committed all of my time to my studies to stay on track. When I applied myself it made all the difference. The support I received from my family was also a huge help. They have always wanted me be the best I can be. My teachers were also invaluable. Whenever I needed help or need resources they were always there to support me.

“To those about to start their A Level journey don’t make the same mistake I did. Be prepared for the challenge ahead. Also, be prepared to work as hard outside the classroom as you do in lessons and you’ll do just fine.”
