BMet students are celebrating their A Level results today with an overall pass rate of 97%, an increase on last year.
BMet provides A Levels across Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and Stourbridge and saw a 100% pass rate this year in 16 out of 28 subjects studied with some of the highest performing subjects being Law, English Language and Literature, Art and Design and Media Studies.
Sutton Coldfield College has achieved a 98% pass rate, up 3% increase on last year. The College is celebrating a 100% pass rate in 19 out of 23 A Level subjects including Biology, Business Studies, English Language and Literature, History, ICT, Law and Sociology.
Matthew Boulton College and Stourbridge College have also seen some fantastic results with a 96% pass rate and at Stourbridge College a 100% pass rate for 12 of the 20 A Level courses offered.
“The College is proud that our students have once again achieved such outstanding results,” said Andrew Cleaves, Principal and Chief Executive at BMet. “These achievements demonstrate how BMet strives to ensure that students have all the teaching and learning support they need to succeed to the best of their ability.
“Many congratulations to all our students and to the BMet team for their hard work this year.”
Celebrating at Sutton Coldfield College is La –Feequa Watson who gained A* in Sociology, A in Anthropology and a B in Psychology. “I’m so pleased with my results,” she said. “I honestly didn’t know how well I’d do because my subjects felt really hard at times but I was motivated and worked hard. I also relied on support from my teachers and friends. It’s all been worth it now.”
La-Feequa plans to take an Apprenticeship at Gowling WLC in central Birmingham. “I love learning but I’m really keen to start working, so felt that an Apprenticeship would be the best combination,” she continued. “A career in law really appeals to me; it’s an industry that’s always relevant and there’s a guaranteed career for me at the end of my training.”
Aston University beckons for Matthew Boulton College student, Dominic Reid after he achieved C grades in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. “I’ve really enjoyed all my subjects and appreciated the freedom that being in college gives you.” He is going on to study biomedical engineering.
Stourbridge College student, Courtney Perks gained an A in Geography, B in Psychology and B in English Language and Literature. “I fully enjoyed my A Levels and have come away from college with heaps of friends,” she said. Her next destination is the University of Worcester to study Counselling and Psychology.
