A-Level Results Are In
Students today received their AS and A Level results, many have excelled and are now preparing to move on from College and continue their studying at university or find a full time job.
In several years time Louis Marsden-Walters (18) (shown above) hopes to be undertaking an unusual yet exciting PHD in Volcanology. His fantastic grades of A* in Maths, A in Further Maths, A in Geography and B in both Chemistry and Physics have secured his place at university studying Natural Science. Louis commented: “I am a little shocked because I expected two A’s and three B’s. I definitely think A-levels were worth it and I’m certain I made the right decision after seeing my grades. I also developed as a person here and gained a lot of confidence."
Rachel Jackson (18) was thrilled with her results having achieved an A in Sociology, a B in R.E and D in English Literature. In her last assessment in Sociology she managed to achieve 96%. Her results have secured her a place at Coventry University studying Sociology and she hopes to counsel prisoners in the future. Rachel commented “People often need others to help them through tough times and I want to be one of those people.” She also mentioned the college and said “The teachers at the college are so passionate, caring and enthusiastic, I’ve made brilliant friends and I feel that the college has helped me to prepare for university.”
Jade Baker (18) was “really really happy” to have pulled off her predicted A* in Sport as she has always been very sporty and knows that that industry is where her career lies. “I’m going onto Bishop Grosseteste to do Education Studies and Sport in September then possibly go into primary teaching or sport coaching.” Jade also achieved a B in English Language, plus a C in Art and Psychology. Jade added; “The tutors here are really helpful; they put themselves out for you and set you up for university if that is where you want to go.”
Alice Howard (18) is celebrating out with her friends tonight after securing her place studying Land Management at Cirencester in Gloucestershire. She was previously a student at Caistor Grammar school before studying Psychology, Sociology and Human Biology at Lincoln College where she attained an A B and C. Alice said “The tutors are so supportive, for example they put on extra revision classes, and they don’t treat you like children, they get the balance right.”
Glynne Chambers (18) has a different kind of education in mind next. He is hoping to join the RAF now that he has finished his college courses. He studied Law, Psychology and Communications and Culture attaining C’s in each. His next step is to prepare for a big interview for the RAF on 22nd August. But a celebration is in order first!
Thomas Jowett (17) had Sheffield University down as his first choice to do Robotics which involves electronics and mechanics, his second option was the University of Reading to do the same course. He achieved an A in Use of Maths, a B in Physics and C in Chemistry but was unsure about whether he might re-sit some of his courses first. He feels that in a few years time he might like to find himself working in a factory at management level.
Maria Danby (20) undertook all three Maths subjects at the college but certainly didn’t make the wrong decision as she attained a B in both Maths and Use of Maths and a C in Further Maths. She is now going on to Plymouth Univeristy to study Maths before taking up a post graduate course in teaching and going on to teach at a secondary school. “I’m very nervous about going to university but excited too. I’m very happy right now but quite sad to be leaving the college, I love it here!”
Lincoln College wishes all their students the best of luck for the future.
