Newcastle under Lyme College

Students at Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) are celebrating their A Level results today.

Students have achieved 130 A* and A grades across a range of subjects including Business Studies, Biology and Psychology, an increase on last year’s results.

Three subjects in particular achieved exceptional success this year; Maths/Further Maths, Law and Physics. In Maths just under 60% of students achieved A*-B grades, in Law 56% of students achieved A*-B grades and in Physics 58% achieved A*-B grades.

Commenting on this year’s achievements, Karen Dobson, Principal at NULC, said: “We’re absolutely delighted by the achievements of all the students, and very proud of all the staff who have worked hard to provide the high standard of teaching, learning and support that helps our students to achieve such high levels of success.”

100 per cent pass rates have been achieved in 19 A Level subjects including Accounting, Law, Physics, Critical Thinking, Economics, Geography, English Language and Literature, Art and Design and Photography.

The A Level success mirrors the high levels of achievement on the College’s vocational courses, where pass rates place the College amongst the best Further Education colleges in the country. 106 students achieved a triple distinction on the College’s advanced vocational courses - equivalent to three As at A Level and attracting the same number of UCAS points.
