Reminder of 2012 Worth School leavers’ results

With the current Worth School Year 13 students about to move onto pastures new and Year 11 students looking forward to life in the Sixth Form,we look back on the results of last year’s exam students.

The Year 11 pupils who took GCSEs at Worth school in 2012 produced the best percentage of A* grades ever achieved at the school.  These results meant that the School had an overall pass rate of 54% at A*- A grades at GCSE level.

Year 13 students who left Worth School last year studying the IB attained an average score of 37 points. This is equivalent to receiving 3 A*s at A Level. The average score of 37 achieved is particularly impressive as the worldwide average currently stands at 29.6.

The good news continued at A Level with 16 students achieving a minimum of 3 A* or A grades. The combined grades of all 2012 IB and A Level students represent an A*- B pass rate of 75% and Worth School had an overall pass rate of 98%.

The 2012 leavers did brilliantly in securing places at their first-choice universities with 77% of 2012 leavers gaining places at the top 43 universities in the UK, plus a number of leavers choosing to go to top universities abroad. 2012 leavers have now completed their first year in their chosen courses; these being as diverse as Psychology at Exeter, Law at Warwick, Classics at Edinburgh, Maths at Oxford, Geography at Manchester, Biology at Bath and Engineering at Bristol.

This year’s A-Level students will receive their results on 15th August so we wish all of them luck.  For those who were in the same situation 12 months ago – and no doubt remember it vividly – we hope that they are pursuing their current students with enthusiasm and doing us proud as Worthians.
