Ealing Independent College achieves best A-Level results ever
Posted on: 13 Aug 2015
Students at Ealing Independent College are celebrating today, as the College has produced its best A-Level results ever. Whilst the number of top-grade students has dropped nationally this year, Ealing Independent College has achieved excellent result with as many as 32% of the grades awarded being A*/A, and 60% of the grades awarded being A*/B.
The A-Level results will give Ealing Independent College a very strong average points score per A-level entry and will undoubtedly place the College highly in the DfE Performance Tables due to be released early next year.
Principal, Dr Ian Moores, said, “I am delighted to report that it has been an exceptional year for our A-Level students. My dedicated staff, the industry of the students, and the approach that we take at the College enabled students to reach their goals and in many cases surpass all expectations. A third of the grades achieved were A*/A – a truly outstanding achievement.”
25% of the students at the College achieved AAB or better, and there were many exceptional individual performances that are highlighted below.
