A Level Exam Results 2017
Thursday, 17 August 2017
KGGS reports another excellent year for results at A-level with 69% of all grades being awarded at A*/B. Year 13 students have achieved a 99.8% pass rate overall at A-level, with 36% of all subject passes being awarded at the top 2 grades.
Headteacher Mr Scott was delighted for the students. He commented, "It has again been an immensely busy year for students and staff who have worked tremendously hard. There has been much attention given to the new, more challenging A-Levels, assessed for the first time this year. Given that the intention nationally was to raise the standards particularly at the higher grades, I am particularly pleased to report that 14% of all grades achieved by KGGS students were at A* -which is our highest ever. Our students’ results are richly deserved and I am particularly pleased that at this early stage it appears that the vast majority of our Y13 students have achieved the grades they needed to gain access to their desired courses in Higher Education. This is a time to celebrate the efforts and achievements of all of our students.”
There were a number of outstanding individual performances at KGGS with an impressive 33 students achieving at least 3 A*/A grades, 3 of whom achieved 5 A*/A grades.
