GSCE Results 2018!
Our students are celebrating after receiving a strong set of GCSE results this year.
The UTC has seen an improvement across all GCSE subjects with many showing significant progress from last year.
In 2017 the new 9-1 grading system for GCSEs was introduced. It’s being phased in over three years to reflect a more demanding curriculum, but despite this students gained very strong grades in maths and science; maths achieving 72% at 4+ (equivalent to a C grade and higher) and 57% at 5+ (equivalent to a B grade and higher), placing it above the national average compared to 2017 results.
Science achieved over 90% 4+ for each of the individual sciences and 61% and 48% respectively for core and additional science, again placing it above national average compared to 2017 results.
The college also significantly improved performance for computer science, geography and engineering with 83% of students achieving Btec engineering qualification.
There was a good improvement on the combined results for English and maths with 53% of students achieving 4+ and 29% achieving 5+, which is a significant improvement on last year’s results.
Joe Mulligan, Principal said: “I am really pleased with the GCSE results our students have achieved in what has been a challenging year for the UTC. This is a testament to all the hard work our students have put in supported by their teachers and families.
“I am delighted to say that all subjects have shown an improvement on last year with many making significant gains including maths, all sciences and engineering.”
