Exam Results 2013
Following the national pattern, the A* count (23.2%) was lower than in 2012 (24.4%) but higher than in 2011 (21.3%). Similarly, the A*-B percentage (85.9%) is lower than last year (87.6%), but higher than in 2011 (84.5%).
As usual, there were many stunning individual performances and the majority of candidates were very close to their final prediction (submitted by their teachers in April). The Head Scholar demonstrated her worth with 5 A*s, four candidates achieved 4 A*s and 11 more finished with 3 A*s. Overall, 63 candidates (36%) achieved 3 A Levels at grade A or above and no one failed an A Level.

We do not certificate AS grades at this stage, but if we did the percentage of A grades (52%) would be very encouraging and, following the completion of re-marks, will probably surpass last year’s 53%. 24% of the year group have attained 4 A grades or more. 18 candidates (just over 10%) achieved over 90% UMS marks making them very strong candidates for Oxbridge (or equivalent) universities. Five pupils were made Honorary Scholars as a result of their performances in the AS exams.

The third year of the ‘harder’ IGCSE papers saw some stunning results. This was the best ever year for A*s: the overall A* (51.9%) being a huge step up from last year’s previous highest of 46.3%. 50 candidates acquired 8 or more A*s (as opposed to 30 in 2012), and 31 pupils (including new entrants) were awarded Honorary Scholarships for achieving 9A*s or more. 18 achieved 10 or more (compared to 8 in 2012). One pupil achieved 13A*s, with 2 more getting 12.
