North Hertfordshire College is celebrating a 98 per cent success rate on A-levels results day.
Students at the college received their results in Stevenage this morning with 71 per cent achieving A* to C grades and the majority of students gaining a place at their first choice university.
There was also a 100% success rate at AS Level with 80% of students achieving A* - C grades.
Riobhne Clohessy said: “I’m shocked by the A* in sociology, I put the work in so I don’t know why but I didn’t think I’d get an A*, and I’ve got into Middlesex, my first choice university, to study journalism and creative writing. I decided to study A-levels because I did really well and better than I expected in my GCSEs, and I came to the college because I wanted a more mature environment to study in.”
Also celebrating were Pebbles Buckley with AABB and James Norman with ABBC.
