Thousands of students across the country picked up their A Level results yesterday by visiting their sixth form or college.
FE Week went to South Thames College on the big day in order to speak to some of the learners and staff about their achievements.
Merton 6th Form at South Thames College has announced record levels of success this year, with overall pass rates staying consistently high at 97%. High grades (A-C) in particular increased to 72%, up from 63% the previous year.
Robert Hobbs, Head of A Levels at the College said: “We are very pleased with the continued success of our A Level students. This excellent set of results, at a time of ever increasing competition for university places, will ensure our students can go to their university of choice.”
FE Week spoke to a range of students about their grades, how they reacted to them and what they plan to do next.
