Joseph Chamberlain College – Another Exceptional Year of Results
Joseph Chamberlain College’s students have every reason to celebrate today on receiving their A-Level and Level 3 BTEC grades. In a context of national high grades being lower than previously, by contrast, 51% of our A-Level students achieved the highest grades of A*, A or B, with 82% achieving A* – C, and 99% of students passing their courses. 71% of students studying Level 3 BTEC programmes achieved the highest grade of Distinction/Distinction*. We are therefore proud to say that students at Joseph Chamberlain, one of the region’s highest-performing Sixth Form Colleges and the only Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ College in the region, have achieved some truly exceptional exam results.
Once again, Joseph Chamberlain College has seen a record number of its students progressing to the country’s most prestigious universities and university courses. Joseph Chamberlain College would like to congratulate each and every one of its students for their impressive achievements, which are the culmination of years of hard work, and also wishes them every success in the future.
For example, the College is celebrating the phenomenal success of our high achieving students who are venturing far and wide for their future studies: Lavinia Irimia (AAA with A* in EPQ) is progressing to the University of Bath for Psychology and Muhammed Mujahid Said (A* AA) is taking up a place for Dentistry at Birmingham University. Amongst our Medicine applicants, celebrating success today are: Malak Atshan (ABB) who is taking up a place at Bristol University and Gibril Barry (ABB) who will be studying Medicine at Keele University. Zainab Khan (AAB) and Yasmin Hafsa (A*AA) are taking up Medical places at Birmingham University and Sangida Nazha (A*AA) at Leicester University.
Two of the college’s students who took a gap year were also successful in Medical applications and will be progressing to King’s College London, including Abdus Salam Dudu (A* A* A*).
High achieving students have paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of College staff in supporting them in their achievements: Shiza Adnan (AAB and A in EPQ) says, “studying at JCC has been incredible, I’ve learnt so much, not just about the subjects I’ve studied, but also about life and independence”. Ahad Zaheer (AAB) says “it was one of the best experiences of my life. It was amazing to meet new people and be a part of the JCC family”. Isha Barrow (A*B Distinction*) says that “the JCC teaching is great and of a high level, teachers help you achieve your full potential with lots of resources, there is great out-of-lesson support.”
Principal of Joseph Chamberlain College, Tony Day, was delighted by the news, stating: “Our students have excelled in their studies again this year, and they have so much to celebrate. The class of 2023 has achieved some brilliant grades, and I am thrilled with their success. Our students can now move on to the university places they have worked so hard for over the last couple of years. As Principal of the College, I am ever so proud of all that our students have accomplished with us.”
