A Level Results 2012

Exceptional pass rates

As competition for University places continues to grow the A level results achieved by students of Toot Hill College this year have continued the tradition of excellent achievement.

With a 99.5% pass rate this year and 83.5% of all entries being graded A*-C, students are well placed to secure their first choice in higher education.

Executive Headteacher, John Tomasevic stated: 

"I am delighted with the continued success of Toot Hill College students. These excellent results reflect the hard work and dedication of students and staff and demonstrate that Toot Hill College is a place where students thrive"

Elite grades

Since the introduction of the A* grade at A Level Toot Hill students have regularly achieved this gold standard.  This year is no exception with 41 A* grades achieved over a whole range of subjects including Art, Biology, Business Studies, Product Design, English Language and Literature, History, Law, Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Psychology, Religious Studies and Sociology.

This represents a further improvement on 2011 results, in line with National trends, but more significantly reflects the high academic rigour that is expected within the College.
