The overall A*- C pass rate was an impressive 95% which compares very favorably to the Wales average of 66.6% and the UK average of 68.8% , with 78% of all entries graded at A*-B. Of these, 47% were A*/A grades, compared to the Wales A*/A average of 19.4%.
Sky Treasure-Jeffreys, from Brecon, was the strongest performer, with 9 A*s and a B in her full course GCSEs. She also achieved A* grades in two further subjects taken as short course qualifications.
On receiving her results, Sky said: “I’m just so pleased with my results! The only problem now is that I’ve got too many options to choose from in September!” During the summer holidays, Sky spent a very useful work placement with legal firm, Capital Law, with the eminent legal expert, David Seligman OBE.
David Dai, who lives in Swansea, is also celebrating, achieving 5 A*s, an A* in his short course ICT exam, as well as 3 As and a B.
Rosie Evans, from Cradoc, achieved 8 A*s and 2 As plus a further A* in her short course ICT exam. Rosie commented: “These are much better than I thought I’d achieve! I’m going to study languages in the Sixth Form but I don’t know what I want to study at university yet.”
Emily Devoy, from Leominster, and Annabel James, from Brecon also gained 6 full course A*s and an A* in their short course ICT exam.
An excited Annabel said: “I haven’t slept all night, but I’m so excited now! I’ve got what I thought I was going to get so I’m very happy. I’m also so pleased that my friends have done so well and achieved or done better than they thought. I’ll probably do Geography, Economics and Spanish in September.
Emily added: “My results are what I was expecting so I’m over the moon. I’m going to pursue a career in medicine so it will be the sciences for me next year.”
Matthew Dempsey, from Brecon, was another who was seeing stars with 4 A*s, 6 As, and an A* in his short course ICT exam.
“I’m really pleased that I got A*s in the subjects that I want to take at A level and I’m still intending to follow a career in Nuclear Engineering!” commented Matthew.
Another local pupil who has cause to celebrate is Harry Peach, from Crickhowell. Harry bagged 4 A*s, an A in his short course ICT exam, 3 As and a B.
