Record GCSE passes give BMet students a professional boost
GCSE students at BMet have had excellent news today after receiving their results – in what is a record year of success for the college.
900 students have achieved grade 4s and above today, all of whom left school without a Grade 4 in English or Maths GCSE (Thursday 20 August 2020).
Of those 900 students – 689 were aged between 16-18 and 211 were adults (19+) who were returning to education.
487 students secured a 4 or above in GCSE in English Language while 413 students gained a 4 or above in Maths.
2020 has been a great year of progression for BMet’s 16-18 students. With 617 students improving on their English grade compared with school and 832 students improving on the maths grade achieved at school.
“Our results show that whatever age or learning stage you are at, it’s never too late for you to gain your GCSEs and follow your dreams,” said Cliff Hall, Principal at BMet.
“Many of our students have come to us without a GCSE English or maths Grade 4 and we have helped them achieve great grades. Securing these grades means that they can go on to fulfil their future ambition be it going on to university, higher level courses, employment or start an apprenticeship.
“We are particularly pleased with the progression that some of our students have made this year leapfrogging from lower to higher grades. It shows what you can achieve if you don’t give up!
“A huge well done to our students and staff for everything they’ve achieved this year in what have been the most challenging of circumstances.”
One student celebrating success is GCSE maths and English student Kerrie-Anne, who achieved a grade 4 in both subjects, said: “I am extremely happy and my results mean the word to me. I am one step closer to pursuing a career in child care.”
GCSE student Alexander, is also very pleased, after obtaining a grade 5 in English. He said: “I am extremely relieved that I have achieved what I have, especially after not getting the results I needed the first time around! It just shows that hard work pays off and I am so glad I persevered, particularly as I am now closer to being a Physiotherapist – which is my dream job!”
BMet is currently enrolling for this September’s GCSE admission, alongside A Level and vocational courses, apprenticeships and higher level courses.
