Today saw the publication of the A Level results for the class of 2018. Lots of students, many accompanied by their proud parents, came into college to collect their results slips and celebrate their success with their friends and teachers.

The Class of 2018 achieved a very impressive 99% pass rate with 51% of grades at A*-B. Carmel’s results saw 80% of grades at A*-C, an increase of 0.3% on last year. This has bucked the national trend which has seen A*-C grades fall overall compared to last year. This year, once again saw Carmel’s BTEC courses achieve a 100% pass rate with 88% of grades at Distinction*/Distinction – a fantastic achievement!

2018’s results confirm that Carmel is:
One of the top 10 Sixth Form Colleges in the country*
The top performing college in Merseyside*
The top A Level provider in St Helens*

*The Times, % A* grades (17-08-18)

Carmel College Principal, Mike Hill, was delighted. He commented, “We are really pleased with this year’s outstanding results. The number of our students who have achieved a grade C or above has increased which is really pleasing, particularly compared to the national picture. Not only does this show how hard our students have worked, it also illustrates how our staff continue to be passionate about working with students both in passing on their knowledge and supporting them to achieve their best.”
