BMet students achieve record GCSE result success
BMet GCSE students have received a set of record grades, in the second year of Covid disruption to exams.
GCSE Maths and English achievement rates have improved significantly for the 2nd year running across the college with 1,100 students gaining the highest grades (9-4).
To mark the occasion, a selection of students came into Matthew Boulton College today to celebrate their exam success with their tutors.
This is what they had to say:
Chelsea, who gained a grade 4 in English said: “I’m really happy with my result, especially as I was beginning to think that I may never pass. I struggled with English at school, so my confidence has now been boosted!
“This result will help me proceed to a Level 2 in Early Years and I’m one step forward to pursuing a career in this area.”
Kevin, who has just completed his Level 2 in Business added: “It is great that I have now got a grade 4 in English, after getting a grade 4 in Maths last year! It is so good to know that my hard work and positive outlook has paid off and am now on the road to having a career in property development.”
Jodie-Kris said: “I achieved a grade 4 in Maths, which I am very pleased with. I worked so hard to get my results and am looking forward to sharing the good news with my friends and family.
“My next step is to do a Level 3 Access to Health and Social Care at the college, which I am now even more excited about.”
BMet offers GCSE study in English and Maths for learners aged between 16 and 19, as well as adult learners either as standalone opportunities, or as part of a variety of courses including ESOL, foundation learning and vocational.
Jan Myatt, Matthew Boulton College Vice Principal said: “Many of our students have come to us without a GCSE English or maths pass and we have helped them achieve great grades to go on to university, higher level course options, employment or start an apprenticeship.
“These results prove that whatever learning stage you are at, it’s never too late for you to gain your GCSEs and follow career ambitions.
“A huge well done to our students and staff for everything they’ve achieved this year, in what again has been a challenging time.”
BMet is currently enrolling for this September’s GCSE admission, alongside A Level and vocational courses, apprenticeships and higher level courses.
