PETER Symonds College maintained its place as one of the top college’s in England after posting more outstanding results.
Its A Level pass rate was 99 per cent, with 82 per cent of students securing A* to C grades. At AS Level, the pass rate was 92 per cent with 70 per cent scoring A-C grades.
More than 500 A* grades were gained while 62 per cent of the A Level results were between A* and B, the grades needed to enter top universities.
Kate Prescott was the stand out student achieving the highest grade possible in every subject taken, with six A* A Levels and three As at AS Level.
The 18-year-old from Broad Lane, Swanmore, took chemistry, maths, further maths, physics, general studies and an extended project A Levels and biology, French and critical thinking at AS.
She said: “I was pretty shocked but I’m so happy with how I have done. It was quite scary as I had a lot of work to do and took an awful lot of exams but I started revising really early so I was fairly confident I would do well.
“It’s been two years of hard work but the rewards are amazing. I still can’t believe it.
Kate will now go to Cambridge University to take natural sciences but isn’t planning her future out just yet.
She added: “I can’t wait to go to university and move away and make new friends. It’s going to be really exciting, but I haven’t got any plans beyond that at the moment.”
