Record breaking A level results
18 Aug 2011
The Perse congratulates its students on breaking all previous school records with some stellar A level results. 95% of examination entries were awarded at A*-B, with 79% of entries gaining either A* or A grades.
Perse students collectively achieved 162 A* grades which represented 37% of all grades awarded. A*s are only given to candidates who achieve an A grade overall, and over 90% in the challenging A2 exams. One student secured an outstanding clean sweep of seven A* grades, and a further 20 were awarded A*s in all of their subjects.
Head, Ed Elliott, commented, “These A level results are exceptional even by the high standards of The Perse. I congratulate the students on all that has been achieved, and thank the staff for their hard work. The vast majority of Perse students will now progress to their first choice university.”
