GCE A Level Pass Rates Still 100% at Ortu Sixth Form
A Level results released today (Thursday 16 August) have confirmed Ortu Sixth Form continues to post a robust 100% student pass rate.
For the third year running all students attending the College have passed at least 1 A Level exam and received an A* - E pass grade.
98% gained 2 A levels and 86% walked away with three or more A* - E passes.
The average Advanced Level grade remains a C, two grades above the Grade E pass point.
Level 3 Vocational and Technical outcomes were equally impressive. The average Level 3 Vocational grade stands at an impressive Distinction status, despite 2018 being the first year in which there was an examination element to Level 3 Vocational Qualifications, which many believe made them tougher. 100% of students achieved a Vocational qualification or more this year, with 71% achieving an impressive three, Level 3 Qualifications.
Economics, Drama, Media, and PE had no grades below a C and 15 subject areas had 100% pass rates.
