GCSE Results 2019: Boston College




Boston College students are celebrating today after receiving their English and maths GCSE results.

With the increasing importance of GCSEs, many students are now progressing on to their next steps, whether it be in education or the workplace. These results showcase the hard work and dedication displayed by the students to gain those all-important grades they did not achieve within secondary education.

One of those students celebrating today is Arturs Masevics, of Swineshead. Arturs gained a grade 5 in English and grade 7 in maths after only arriving in the UK one year ago.

He said: “When I started studying for my GCSEs I had a very basic level of English. However, the additional English lab classes and Saturday revisions sessions were really helpful with developing my language skills."

Arturs is currently studying Level 3 engineering at college, with the aim to continue his studies at university in either architecture or structural Eengineering.

Excited to have achieved the results she needs to apply for her top choice university, Shannon McConkey, of Spalding, is proud to have achieved a grade 5 in English. Shannon’s aim is to study children’s nursing at Oxford Brookes University after completing her Level 3 Health and Social Care course at college.

She said: “I’m really happy with my results. The lecturers at Boston College are really helpful, and the class sizes are small, so you get a lot of support.”

Boston College vice principal Vicki Locke said: “Learners who sat their GCSE English and maths exams this summer have again achieved very well with an overall pass rate of 99 per cent, which exceeds the national average by seven per cent.

"With many learners achieving the highest grades of grade 4-9 (equivalent to A*-C) it shows the brilliant progress they have made during their studies, and the skill and support of our staff team.”

Places are still available on GCSE courses, as well as other courses at Boston College. For more information, visit the enrolment and information event on Thursday, August 29, 2pm to 8pm.
