East Berkshire College students celebrated another year of excellent GCSE results.

Language students had particular cause for celebration as they received their final grades on Thursday 20th August. In fact, on the part-time Spanish GCSE course 100% of students achieved A*-C grades, with eight students obtaining A* grades. Plus, 100% of students also achieved A*-C in GCSE Polish.

From Spanish 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.

As well as languages, the College also offers GCSEs in English, maths and science as well as one-year GCSE pathways. This year more students sat and passed higher tier maths (124 students achieved A*-C) and English (136 students achieved A*-C) than in previous years. In fact, 96% of GCSE maths students achieved grade A*-E.

A delighted Ammar Hussain (20, from Slough) was one of the students to achieve an A* in English and a C in maths. He explains: "I'm really pleased with my results and grateful to my teachers for all the support they've given me. I needed to obtain my English and maths GCSEs in order to go to university. This result means I can study a degree in nutrition at St Mary's University."

Danielle Humphries (17, from Windsor) was elated with her C in psychology: "I am delighted to have passed as I can now go on to study A Levels at college, and then hopefully university! I am really enjoying studying at the College as it is such a great environment, the class sizes are smaller than school and the teachers make learning interesting."

Windsor College student Raima Butt was also celebrating her grade B in maths. She said: "Alongside taking my GCSE maths, I've also been studying the BTEC medical science course at the College. Achieving a good grade in maths will now give me lots more options."

East Berkshire College offers a wide variety of part-time and full-time courses ranging from introductory right through to degree level. Subjects include everything from IT and accounting to interior design and teacher training.
