It has been another fantastic year of results for Joseph Chamberlain College and its students, with a 99% A-level pass-rate for the fourth year running and over half of all A-level grades an A or B grade.
Tony Day, Deputy Principal at the College said: “Once again, the exam results achieved by our students are outstanding. Each year, our students make us very proud and, this year, they have once again achieved record results. The extremely high pass rates and the number of A and B grades at A-level, in the first year of the much more challenging linear A-levels, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all staff and students at Joseph Chamberlain College. It is always such a pleasure to see so many students progressing to their first choice university courses and this year it has been better than ever.”
Top achievers at A-level this year included Neelam Ahmed who achieved a very impressive two A*’s and an A in Business Studies, Maths and Further Maths and is now going on to read Mathematics with Business Management at the University of Birmingham.
