A-level results show continued high standards and outstanding individual performances

Learners at Coleg Sir Gar have produced an outstanding set of A level results this year, in what for many was still a relatively new experience of sitting formal examinations at this level of study. The recent return to a formal examination-based assessment required extra support, guidance and care, provided by committed and specialist staff from across the A level programme.

For A level qualifications, the College celebrates 30% of learners attaining A*-A grades, whilst 13% of entries achieved the top A* grades. This is an outstanding achievement and a testament to the hard work of all students and staff throughout the last two years. Notable subject performances included Biology, Business Studies, English Literature, Further Mathematics, Geography, Government & Politics, Law, Mathematics, Physical Education, Psychology and Sociology. Overall, 81% of learners achieved grades A*- C and 99% achieved grades A – E. This is in line with expectations highlighted by Qualifications Wales and the WJEC.

Mrs Angharad Mansfield, Head of Sir Gar 6 stated ‘we are delighted and proud of all our A Level learners’ achievements this year.  The increase in the number achieving the top grades reflect the dedication, determination and ambition of both staff and learners at Sir Gar 6.  The vast majority of our students will now progress to studying aspirational courses such as Medicine and at the very best universities in the UK including Cambridge. On behalf of all staff at the college, we wish them every success in the future.

Dr Andrew Cornish, Principal at Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion stated ‘It is great to see our students performing consistently well and to a high standard. These A Level results along with an equally strong performance in the Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) will see our learners continue to progress to Higher Education throughout the United Kingdom to pursue their chosen careers.

Equally impressive is the high grades achieved on our vocational programmes. These results, coupled with tremendous success in national and international skills competitions, will enable our vocational learners to progress to University, Apprenticeships, Higher Level Apprenticeships and future employment.

Overall, this excellent performance reflects the progression of students from the strong foundations laid in partner schools in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and beyond. On behalf of the college, I wish them the very best for the future.’
