THE wait was finally over for A-level students at Boston College - who were celebrating their results this morning.
With a 97 per cent pass rate, staff at the college’s De Montfort campus, in Mill Lane, were delighted with the results.
Boston College principal Amanda Mosek said, “I am absolutely delighted with our A level results this year and am particularly pleased to see so many students achieving the highest grades.
She added: “It is a credit to the hard work of our students and staff and shows once again that Boston College is a brilliant place to come and study at.”
This year students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in 11 out of the 15 A-levels subjects available. A*, A and B grades contributed to 46 per cent of the overall grades achieved, an 11 per cent leap from last year’s figures. On average, every one in 10 A-level students achieved an A*.
In particular, maths, further maths and statistics achieved 27 A* or A grades out of a possible 58 results.
Amanda Rogowska, of Boston, was among these students achieving an A* in Polish, an A in maths, an A in law and a B in English language.
Amanda said, “I’m amazed as I expected to get nothing higher than a B grade. Now I have the grades I need to get onto a degree in Law, Human Rights and Justice at De Montfort University, Leicester, in September, so I can pursue a career as a barrister.”
