FANTASTIC four Exmouth Community College Students have posted perfect results in this year's A-level exams.
Tops marks went to Christopher Jeffs, Deborah McBurnie, Casandra LockYear, and Robert Yabsley who all gained straight A grades in the three exams they sat.
The success reflects the continued improvement of AS and A2 results (A Level years one and two) at Exmouth Community College on last year - and marks another step in the inexorable march towards a 100 per cent pass rate at A level.
At A2 level the overall pass rate for the 344 exams sat by 132 students also increased, rising from 90 per cent in 2007 to 93 per cent this year. The proportion of higher grades also showed a small increase of 1.5 per cent.
The overall pass rate for the 495 exams taken at AS level by 163 year 12 students has risen by over 2 per cent, to stand at over 77 per cent.
Deputy Principal Michael Stuart said: "Post-16 intermediate course results (eg, National Diplomas) also show encouraging success, with many students gaining Distinctions and Merit levels as well as an increase in the numbers gaining a Pass.
"The hard work by the students and their teachers has been rewarded.
