Congratulations to all our Year 13 students who are celebrating their A level and vocational course results today. Following last year’s significantly improved and impressive results, the students in 2019 have maintained this level of success. The overall average point score per student and average grade per subject entry remains stable and positive. In line with last year’s results, the average grade per entry is a B.
Students achieving A Level grades at AAB or higher in facilitating subjects has improved which allows access to a range of undergraduate courses and employment opportunities in professional sectors. With young people increasingly pursuing a vocational pathway, more of our students now study vocational courses in our Sixth Form and have achieved great success with the average grade per entry being a distinction. Two students will be embarking on their studies at Oxford (Mathematics with Philosophy) and Cambridge (Natural Sciences), and for the first time, a number of our students are starting at Edinburgh University. Four St. Mary’s students will be studying either Medicine or Dentistry.
Almost all students have gained a place at their first choice university. In 2018 St. Mary’s was named as the top school in Leeds for students attending Russell Group universities and indicative figures again suggest a high proportion of our students are progressing to the top universities in the country.
This year group has contributed greatly to the St. Mary’s community and we thank them and their parents for their support. We wish all our Year 13 students every success and look forward to celebrating with them at the A Level Presentation Evening in December.
