A Level and AS Level Results 2017
Ruthin School has had another successful year with a high proportion of students gaining entry to Oxbridge and other top ranking universities. Over 92% of all A Level grades were A*-B.
10 students (out of a cohort of 66) have had offers confirmed at Cambridge and Oxford, the School’s highest number ever. These students will study a range of courses, including Mathematics, Medicine, Economics, Music and Natural Sciences and Engineering.
34 students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades (over the half the cohort).
The top students (gaining more than 3A*) were:
Veronica Li (4A* 1A) – Mathematics, Cambridge
Sophie Sun (4A* 1A) – Mathematics, Cambridge
Viki Tong (4A* 1A) – Mathematics, Cambridge
Lee Li (4A*) – Natural Sciences, Cambridge
Kim Ma (4A*) – Mathematics, Imperial College
Arun Thirunavukarasu (4A*) – Medicine, Cambridge
Betty Hu (3A* 2A) – Economics, Cambridge
Katherine Li (3A* 2A) – Finance, London School of Economics
Rayna Zhang (3A* 2A) – Economics, Cambridge
Grant Guo (3A* 1A) – Engineering, Cambridge
Samantha Poh (3A* 1A) – Music, Oxford
Roy Zheng (3A* 1A) – Engineering, Cambridge
At AS Level, the results were similarly impressive with a high number of Lower Sixth students gaining top grades. 22 pupils achieved A grades in all subjects.
Toby Belfield, Principal, commented: “I am delighted with this year’s results. Our students choose Ruthin School so that they can gain access to a top ranking university. Having over 15% of our cohort achieving entry to Oxbridge is a tremendous success. With the change to the A Level specifications this year, we were not sure what to expect. However, as a result of hardwork from both the students and the teaching staff we can celebrate yet another year of outstanding results.”
Congratulations to all students at Ruthin School who received their results today. A fantastic achievement!
