THE wait is finally over and emotions are running high as the King’s Ely sixth form students collect their all-important A Level results today (17).
Celebrations started at 10am this morning when it was revealed that nearly one third of all A2 results were A*s or As, and a total of 80 per cent were A*-C grades.
There were also many individual and class successes in the A2s. All students studying Textiles, German, Spanish and Russian received A*s or As. Subjects where all students in the class scored A*s-Cs include Business Studies, Government and Politics, French, Chinese, Photography, Film Studies, Classical Civilisation and Religious Studies.
Individual achievers, who all received at least three A*s and As, include Kate Martin, Aidan Martin, Robert West, Jack Yon, Flo Wynn, Lee Wei Wong, Eliot Koopowitz, Harlan Kohll, Oliver Hill and Hing Yum Cheng.
It was a double celebration for twins Kate and Aidan, who each received two As and an A* in their A Levels. Both twins have been offered a place at the University of East Anglia, which was the first choice for both. Kate also achieved 100% for both of the A2 Textiles units.
The most popular A Levels were Mathematics and Biology. In both subjects, a third of students scored A*s or As.
Year 12 students have also been celebrating their AS results today. High achievers, who all received four As, include Leo Banahan, Luke Cave, Jamie Huffer, Chun-Yum Lin and James Wege.
Milly Green, Tony Lesmeister, Sophie Emms, Shiren Geng, Jennifer Goss, Christiane Lewien, Po-Kang Li, Axel Rois and Clea Tanner, all got three As.
Head of King’s Ely, Sue Freestone said: “These results represent the fruits of years of hard work and commitment on the part of our students, and the support of their teachers and families. We are proud of all they have achieved.”
