A Level Results

Exam Results - A-Level

We welcome a rull range of students, who join with varied starting points in their academic school career, and make outstanding progress.
alps cert Educationalists agree that the best means of judging school performance are ‘value-added’ measures which assess progress made by students over the course of their studies.  At A level, different systems exist for this purpose, with each measuring value-added in a slightly different way.  At Alexandra Park School we have always prioritised the A Level Prediction System.  This is widely considered to be the ‘toughest’ measure as it assesses value-added purely on the successful completion of A level courses. This does not include the subsidiary qualifications that some students sit at the end of year 12, nor other certificated options completed as part of enrichment studies,  which whilst of undoubted value, can give a misleading impression of progress in the most important national measures.  

Highlights of our 2018 results included:

  • 30% of all examinations were awarded A*/A grades (26% nationally)
  • 61% of all examinations were awarded A*-B grades (53% nationally)
  • The overall average grade for A level students was a B-
  • 1 in 7 A level students achieved three A*-A grades
  • Five students achieved 3 or more A* grades
  • More than half of all students in Year 13 achieved at least three A*-B grades
  • 13 students offered a place to study at Oxbridge
