A Level Results 2019

Posted on: August 15th 2019College Events


Students at De Lisle College are celebrating an outstanding set of A level results this year. Amongst the many students who have accepted places at their first choice universities, are four students who will be studying at Oxford or Cambridge in September. Chloe achieved a remarkable set of four A* grades and has confirmed her place at Cambridge to read medicine. Joining her at Cambridge University is Anna, whose two A*s and an A grade have admitted her onto the prestigious natural sciences programme, where she intends to specialise in physics. Meanwhile, Amy has achieved an impressive A* and two A grades which have confirmed her place at Oxford to read medicine. Also studying at Oxford will be Anna, who plans to read philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) after gaining A grades in history, maths and French.

Other standout performances include Caitlin (accepted to read physics at York University) who secured 2 A*s and an A, and Peter, a gifted mathematician who is looking forward to his maths, statistics and economics degree at the University of Warwick after achieving 2A*s, an A and a B. Lucy (A* and two As), will take up a place at Leeds University to study liberal arts whilst Charlie will study medicine at Liverpool University, after gaining A grades in biology, chemistry and maths. Jamie (chemical engineering) and Paola (Italian and French) are both going to the University of Birmingham, after achieving three A grades.

Overall, almost one student in ten achieved a minimum of three A grades at A level, with 59% taking at least two facilitating subjects. This is reflected in an exceptional performance across a range of subjects, including fine art (71% A* - B), sociology (29% A* and A grades) and French (50% A* and A grades).

We are incredibly proud of all our students and their sustained hard work over the past two years. We wish each of them the very best of luck as they embark on higher level apprenticeships or undergraduate studies next year.
