EXTERNAL EXAMINATION RESULTS 2016

From the Headmistress: Mrs. Emma McKendrick, B.A

Our UVI and UV students have achieved great things in their recent GCSE, A level and Pre-U examinations. Their super results are no accident and are the result of a great deal of hard work on their part, dedicated support and guidance from their teachers and also, of course, from their families. There were, this year more than ever, many individual triumphs as girls exceeded their own expectations. Most important is that the results will enable them to move on to the next stage of their academic journeys with great confidence.

At Pre-U we saw the highest ever number of D1 and D2 grades (A* and A*+ equivalent) with 31% of grades being at this level. A quarter of the year achieved 4 A*/A grades and above and 74% of all the grades were at A*/A (D1 M1) level.

The GCSE results were equally pleasing with again just over a quarter (27%) of the girls gaining 8 A*s and above and just under 80% of all the grades being A*s and As. All girls deserve our warmest congratulations.

The range of courses that girls choose for further study remains impressive, as does the very thorough research they undertake prior to choosing their university. A comprehensive list of the destination of leavers will be published once all the girls have made their final decisions about, for example, whether they will defer entries or make a post qualification application to Oxbridge or other universities.
