A majority of Boston College A-level students have gained places at their first choice university according to higher education leaders.

Almost half the students gained A*-B grades and many achieved A grades and A* in Mathematics, Economics and Psychology, which a spokesman said meant they will be ‘looking forward to a bright future, whether that be in Higher Education, further skills training or straight in to employment’.

The spokesman added: “These results are a true reflection of the hard work put in by the students and staff over the last two years at the College.”

Programme Area Manager for A-levels Tom Edwards said: “We are extremely proud of the brilliant results and the continued excellence of our students and our highly qualified staff.

“We have had some particularly high grades in Maths, Economics and Psychology with many learners achieving A grades and A stars.

“Our learners are progressing to a range of Universities including UEA to study Film, The University of Birmingham to study Mechanical Engineering, Bishop Grosseteste to study Teaching and many others. Boston College continues to be an excellent centre to study A-Levels at, and provides a fantastic gateway to Higher Education.”

The college made special mention Milan Cebak who received a grade A in both Economics and Statistics and A* in Mathematics, securing him a place at University College London to study Economics and Business with Eastern European Studies.

Milan’s future ambition is to become a director of an international company or own his own business.

He said, “I am so pleased with my results and excited for my future at University. I have really enjoyed studying A-levels at Boston College and will miss all the lecturers that have supported me throughout my studies.”

Another happy student, who has secured a place at Lincoln University to study Psychology, is Lucy Ryalls.

Lucy achieved an A* in Psychology, B in English Language and B in Sociology.

Lucy said, “I was so happy and surprised to get an A*. I knew I wanted to study A-levels at College and I’m pleased I made that choice two years ago.

“I think college is better than school - you get treated more like an adult and get to work more as a team, with staff and other learners. I’m now looking forward to starting my course at University.”
