Celebrating our A Level Success
Students celebrating their success on A Level results day
Staff and Students at the college were celebrating today (Thursday), after the A Level exam results were announced.
Students visited the college this morning to collect their results and share their future plans with tutors.
Many students are now looking forward to going to university.
Claire Little, 19, from Farnborough, is planning to study Law at Cambridge after a gap year travelling around Asia. She achieved two A*s in Sociology and Biology and an A in Law.
She said: “I actually did my first year at a different college and didn’t do very well. It was a bit of a wake-up call. I decided to come to FCoT, as I felt it was an environment that was friendly and you are treated more like an adult.
“The class sizes are smaller and more intimate and I felt there was more communication so I could really reach out and have time with tutors on a one to one basis.
“The tutors here are just lovely. I just felt they cared so much. It’s the friendships I’ve made too. Because the groups are smaller, you get to know everyone and we all supported each other.”
Laura Grey, 18, from Aldershot, achieved three As in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. She is going to be studying Pharmacy at Medway, University of Kent. She said: “I was so nervous when I checked my results online this morning. But I’m happy and excited to be going off to university this September.
“The teaching here at FCoT has been brilliant. There’s such a good structure of support – I wouldn’t change anything about my time here.
“I was offered three places at different colleges to do my A Levels but I chose FCoT after coming to their summer school. I just felt there was a great atmosphere and I had a good feeling about it – which turned out to be right!”
Ryan Woodfine, 18, from Aldershot, achieved an A in Government and Politics and two Cs in Sociology and Geography. He said: “It’s been a very stressful morning but I’m delighted that I have got into University of Portsmouth to study Geography.
“I would like eventually to become an Air Traffic Controller for the RAF but a Geography degree is such a diverse subject that it would open so many doors for me. The support here at FCoT has been great and the hard work has paid off.”
Head of Academic Studies Adam Seddon said: “We are delighted to see that our 16-18 year old A Level students have achieved a 99% pass rate.
“The results have been hard earned but are well deserved and students and their families and friends should be justifiably proud.
“I also want to recognise the dedicated work of teachers and staff who have supported, motivated and inspired students through their studies.
“We want to wish our students the best of luck in their future lives and look forward to hearing of their future success.”
