Callywith College’s A Level and Extended Diploma students are celebrating as they secure progression opportunities.
The 215 A Level students receiving results at the College, Bodmin have collectively secured a 99.4% pass rate, with 72% of entries being awarded A*-B grades; 10% higher than national averages for 2022.
Students studying Level 3 Extended Diploma and Diploma courses have also achieved excellent results. With 106 (43%) of the College’s cohort of 245 students passing, with the top distinction grades or higher.
Callywith College Principal Jon Grey said: “Amongst all the coverage of government’s demands to clamp down on grade inflation following the cancellation of exams over the previous two years due to Covid – that is certainly not the case for the students of Callywith College.
Results obtained this year have far exceeded the exceptional results achieved by our last cohort of examined students in 2019 ahead of our outstanding Ofsted rating in 2020.”
“The vast majority of our university applicants have successfully gained entry to their first-choice institutions. Across the College, we have so many great success stories and I’d like to congratulate all of our students on what they have achieved and urge them to keep in touch with the College to let us know how their next steps into employment, and apprenticeship or university are going.”
