DUDLEY students have been celebrating success after A level results delivered top class grades.

At Bishop Milner Catholic College year 13 students achieved an A* to E pass rate of 99 per cent, with 38.4 per cent of students achieving grades A* to B.

Their top performer was Kishan Patel who will be studying medicine at the University of Birmingham after scooping three A* grades and two As.

Bishop Milner principal, Steve Haywood, said: “We are pleased with the results achieved by our students. Their commitment and dedication, alongside the work of our staff, has paid off.

“The students are busy finalising their university places and accommodation for September and the fruits of their hard labour are paying off. On behalf of the directors and staff of the college we congratulate all of our sixth form students.”

Meanwhile Dudley College’s A level students equalled the national pass rate of 98 per cent with a 100 per cent rate in 27 of the 33 subjects taught.

Lowell Williams, principal at Dudley College, said: “We’re delighted that we’ve maintained the 98 per cent A level pass rate we established last year. To see an increase in the number of subjects where our students are securing a 100 per cent pass rate demonstrates the commitment and dedication of students and staff alike.

“Today’s results are an indication that Dudley Sixth, our dedicated A level facility, is an excellent environment for the young people of Dudley to succeed in and achieve those essential grades for university and employment.

“I, along with the staff would like to congratulate our A level students, knowing that their time with us has given them a solid foundation on which to build a successful future and career.”
