Elation, excitement and emotion; just some of the words that could be used to describe the scene at Cardiff Sixth Form College today as students celebrate the release of their A-Level results.
This year, an astonishing 99% of all grades were awarded at A*, A or B. In addition, 57% of all grades were A* and 93% of all grades were A* or A, reinforcing the college’s reputation as one of the UK’s leading A-Level colleges. Remarkably, 109 of 133 candidates achieved at least one A* grade or more, while 26 students achieved 4 A* and 4 students secured an astonishing 5 A* grades.
One student, Kam Hong (Linus) Cheung, from Hong Kong, managed to secure an astounding total of 5 A*s and 2 As.
Again this year, our students will be going on to attend an impressive range of universities; 21 students hold offers from the University of Cambridge, 17 from University College London (UCL), 15 from London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), 13 from Imperial College London and 4 from Warwick University. Between them, they will be joining some of the most competitive courses including Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering, Law, Economics and PPE.
Amongst these students, Samuel Cross will be going on to study Medicine at Imperial College London, after achieving 2 A*s and one A grade. He will be following in the footsteps of his brother, Jacob Cross, who graduated from CSFC in 2013 with three A grades (both Samuel and Jacob are pictured opposite).
