UCSF Academic Results 2020
Students at United College Sixth Form are celebrating after receiving their post-16 results and university offers.
Across the Sixth Form, there was an increase in the number of top grades being achieved at A Level. Many of the Sixth Formers are the first generation in their families to go on to university, with 83% of them successfully achieving their first choice places this year. 57% of entries achieved A* to B grades. Results were strong for vocational courses too, with 41% of entries achieving the highest possible grades of Distinction or Distinction*. Among the individual student successes are:
- Alan who achieved A* Psychology, A Chemistry, A Biology, has now started at University of Sussex studying Chemistry.
- Ellie who got A* Chemistry, A Physics, A Further Maths, A Maths, is now at University of York reading Natural Sciences.
- Zara who achieved EPQ A*, Psychology A*, English Language A and Criminology A, has started at the University of Gloucestershire, studying Criminology and Psychology.
Ruth Robinson, Executive Principal of Swindon Academy, said:
"Our Sixth Formers can take great pride in their achievements today, as a fitting reward for their hard work, ambition and determination over many years of study. It is particularly pleasing that students have not only achieved more of the top A Level grades than last year, but that this has enabled so many of them to secure the university places of their choice.
“Importantly, this sort of success in the Sixth Form cascades down throughout our school, inspiring our younger students to strive to achieve just as highly. We look forward to building on these achievements as we welcome a new cohort this September and continue to take the Sixth Form from strength to strength."
