Celebrating AS and A2 Results

El Alsson British International School students and staff are celebrating a fantastic set of results for this year’s A Level and AS Level qualifications. We are especially proud of our students, staff and parents given that these results have been achieved under very difficult circumstances during the last school year. The results demonstrate the hard work, dedication and motivation over the past year by our students; the support and encouragement of their families and the professional expertise and dedication of their teachers. We wish our students every success as they move onto the next chapter in their lives.

At A Level, 68% of students achieved 3 or more A levels at A*- E with 61% of all students achieving A*- C grades in 3 or more subjects. 39% of students achieved 4 or more A Levels at A*-C. Performance in the key headline measures for the school is in line with last year’s exam performance and consolidates the significant improvements seen in both 2018 and 2019. 67% of students achieved at least AAB in 3 subjects. 56% of all grades were either A* or A grades. The success of the students has ensured that a majority of them have gained their first-choice places at top universities in Egypt, the UK, Europe, Australia and North America.

At AS level, 97% of students achieved 3 or more AS levels at A-E with 78% of all students achieving A-C grades in 3 or more subjects. 64% of students achieved 4 or more A Levels at A-C and 83% of students achieved 4 or more A Levels at A-E . 50% of students achieved at least AAB in 3 subjects. 53% of all grades awarded to students at AS Level were an ‘A’ grade. These headline figures reflect significant increases in the figures for 2019 and 2020.

Principal, Mr Matt Topliss commented “given the unprecedented and uncertain circumstances again this year, these results are testament not only to the academic ability of these students but also to their resilience, trust and determination. We are very proud of the successes of all our students and wish them every success as they move on to the next phase of their lives. Many have secured outstanding results and should be exceptionally proud of their endeavours over the year. I would like to thank them, their families and the teaching staff for the opportunities that have been given to the students and the hard work, guidance and drive that comes with these opportunities. It is very satisfying that a vast majority of our students have secured the university course of their choice or gained the grades to enter Year 13 with a full range of possibilities ahead of them. I would also like to thank the teaching staff for the way in which these circumstances were approached and the work that went into supporting students and producing predicted grades for the examination boards.”

The disruption and uncertainty of the Summer 2021 examination season and the mixed system of teacher assessed grades in some subjects and examinations in others has been a challenge for students, families and teachers. We are here to support any student that has not achieved as well as they might have hoped and we are seeking further information from the exam boards where grades have not been as we expected by the school. We are very keen to support any student that needs help with the university clearing process and they must not hesitate to get in touch with the school over the coming days and weeks if they need to. Year 12 students should also get in touch regarding their results at AS level and their next steps for Year 13 study.

All enquiries in this regard should be addressed to Ms Maggie as Head of Key Stage 5 in the first instance, at Well done to all our students!
