THERE was a ‘mix of emotions’ for Boston College students – as they arrived with baited breath to see their A-level results.

This year was the first time students collected their results from the new sixth form building, based at the Rochford Campus.

The students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in 12 of the college’s 17 A-level subjects. Some 43 per cent of grades achieved were an A or a B.

Three students did exceptionally well and achieved all four grades at grade A.

Sadia Salim, was one of the high-achievers with an A in world development, B in economics, B in law and a C in statistics and will be going on to study accounting at De Montfort University.

Sadia said: “I’m really happy with my grades, and I’m so pleased to have got into my first choice university.”

Tom Edwards, programme leader for A-levels said: “We’re very happy that so many learners have achieved the grades they hoped for, with many accepting places at university.

“The results are a real credit to the hard work of both students and staff. We wish our leavers all the best for the future whether they are continuing their studies with us, at university or entering the workplace.”

He added: “A mix of emotions will now be felt, with some returning to the college to study HNDs, and some moving away and parting from friends that they made during their time here. But, all are excited and looking forward to their next step in starting their careers.”
