It has been another superb year for sixth formers at the Rochester Math School. The 203 Year 13 students who collected their results enjoyed enormous success.
14.8% of all grades awarded were at A*, up from 2019 (the last comparable year).
41.7% of all grades awarded were at A* and A level, up from 40% in 2019, while 67% of all grades secured by these senior students were at A*-B level.
The average points per subject, a measure of the typical grade per A level, is 40.7, also up from 2019 and equates to a B grade.
23 students gained 2 or more A* grades. Remarkably, 62 students (30% of the year group) avoided any grade lower than an A, while 106 students (over 50% of the year group) avoided any grade lower than a B.
A key benchmark is the proportion of students gaining at least AAB in two facilitating subjects, which this year is 25% of Year 13, up from 2019.
The Russell Group and Oxbridge university hopefuls from the school had particular cause for celebration.
The top performing students are: Matthew (4A*, Medicine, Cambridge); Jack (3A*, 1A, Financial Mathematics, Leeds); Demi (2A*, 2A Medicine, King’s College); Jian (2A*, 2A, Mathematics, Durham); Sarah (1A*, 3A, Natural Sciences, Durham); Vivaan (1A*, 3A, Economics, UCL); Benjamin (3A, 1B, Aerospace Engineering); Jake (3A, 1B, Chemistry, Durham); Mikelle (1A*, 3A, Law, Royal Holloway); Dominic (3A*, Physiotherapy, Birmingham), Jessica (3A*, Accounting and Finance, Warwick); Jessica (3A*); George (3A*, Mechanical Engineering, Manchester); James (3A*, Medicine, Cambridge); Aarian (3A*, PPE, Warwick); Muhammad (3A*, Dentistry, Birmingham); Monty (3A*, Economics, Cambridge); Kieran (3A*, Aeronautical Engineering, Loughborough); Leepohang (3A*, Medicine, UCL); Reece (2A*, 1A, Engineering, Oxford).
Principal Eliot Hodges said ‘I am delighted for all our students. They, together with their teachers, have worked really hard and it has paid off. They are a great group of young people who will now move on with confidence to the next stage in their lives’.
