Today was a day of celebration at Loughborough Grammar School with Headmaster Daniel Koch, Head of Loughborough Grammar School, saying: “Congratulations to our A-Level students who have every reason to be proud of their achievements to date.
“Like those before them, this year’s cohort have worked diligently throughout Sixth Form and are now looking forward to continuing their academic journeys at their chosen universities. We wish them all the best.”
Darius achieved 4 A* (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry) and is now ready to study Physics at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. In addition to his 4 A Levels Darius achieved an A* for his EPQ – a 5000 word essay on the subject of quantum computing!
Asked about his advice for other students applying for university, he suggested that interview practice is crucial.
In spite of achieving a clean sweep of A*s Darius didn’t want to open his UCAS email until after he’d opened his results. He came into School to open his results and was extremely happy to see what he’d achieved!!
Harry couldn’t believe his results, he said, “It’s been a long hard year, so it’s been really rewarding to have it all come together on results day.” Talking about the process for applying to Cambridge to read Languages, he said it was tough, but that he was well supported all the way through. “I’m so grateful for all the support I received from the teachers for the entrance exam and interview preparation.” he said.
Harry’s top tip for anyone applying for university, specifically Oxford or Cambridge is to really read around the subject area that you are interested in!
Ian is about to embark on a Degree Apprenticeship for His Majesty’s Treasury which will involve policy making and analysis. Based at the University of Kent, the course will mostly be online, however Ian’s not worried, he had lots of practice with online study due to covid and lockdown happening during their GCSES. Ian studied Economics, History, Maths and Latin and is very excited to be starting his course in a couple of weeks. Understandably, his parents are extremely proud of his achievements and are very excited for him and his future.
Josh achieved 4 A* and is very relieved and happy to be heading to Durham to read Chemistry, whilst Emard is happy with his results and is looking forward to a gap year focused on work experience before studying Dentistry. Asked what his tip for Sixth Form students would be, he said, “Revise for half an hour a day, every day of Sixth Form – that way you keep on top of your revision.” – Wise words!
