Students at The Exmouth Community College celebrated their post-16 results yesterday, (August 17).

88% of ECC UCAS applicants will be attending a university of their choice. 75% of our university applicants achieved their first-choice university place, with 13% achieving their insurance choice. Students will be moving away to top universities across the country from Falmouth to Glasgow, studying courses from Medicine to Game Design.

In comparison to 2019 ECC results have once again shown strong improvement with an additional 16 A* or A grades. The numbers of top grades have been reduced nationally, meaning this year at ECC with the drop in high grades year on year at ECC is better than national.

Nationally, there has been a return to pre-pandemic grading standards, meaning the success of this cohort is even more impressive.

Assistant Principal of Exmouth Community College Philippa Rowe said: "We are exceptionally proud of all of our students' results but particular mentions to Alberta Sprague who will be going on to study Veterinary Science at Nottingham University, a real achievement in one of the most competitive university courses and Beth George who achieved stellar success with A*, A*, A across her A-levels in Art, Sociology and Philosophy. Beth is focused on developing her Art portfolio in Exeter next year as a springboard to her next steps.

"We want to thank all the staff working with our Post 16 students who have been so supportive, creative and determined in enabling every learner to achieve their potential."
