Top marks for GCSE students

Jacqueline and Pernille Web Press article

East Berkshire College has followed up excellent A Level results with outstanding GCSE results.

Language students at the Windsor College had particular cause for celebration as they received their final grades on Thursday 21st August. In fact, on the part-time Spanish GCSE course 100% of students achieved A*-B grades and 71% of GCSE English students achieved A*-C, ahead of the national average of 62%.

A delighted Pernille Skall was one of the students to achieve a B in English: "I'm really pleased with my results. I'm originally from Denmark and I needed to obtain the English GCSE in order to go on to university. This result means I can now take up my place to study psychology in September."

As well as languages, the College also teaches GCSEs in maths and science as well as one year intensive GCSE pathways in science, business, engineering and humanities. The College has a good record of success in these subjects too, with 69% of GCSE maths students achieving grade A*-C, above the national average of 62%.

Jackie Tobin was elated with her B in Science. Jackie, who returned to college to further her career in teaching early years, said: "I'm delighted to have passed as I always found science difficult at school, but I knew I needed to gain my GCSE in order to do my teaching qualification. I have to say, hats off to my college tutors as they really did make learning fun and interesting."

From Italian to Mandarin, the college offers an extensive range of language courses at various levels. The courses are ideal for those who want to learn a second or even a third language for either personal or professional reasons.
