Dulwich College Year 13 students received their A level results this morning. It's a pleasure to report that 28% of the exams they sat were awarded A* grades, with 89 pupils achieving all A or A* grades, 34 boys achieving 3 A*s or better and 11 gaining 4 A*s or better. 86% of papers were awarded grades of A*/A/B.
Senior staff and Heads of Departments have spent the day helping boys finalise their university destinations. 172 pupils have had secured either their firm or insurance offers with 24 securing their Oxford and Cambridge places and 4 going on to medical schools. We are hearing of excellent placements through adjustment and clearing too.
Dr Joe Spence, The Master, records: “These pleasing results bear testimony to the hard work of the pupils and their teachers. I’m delighted that so many pupils are set for the next stage of their education, but we will continue to help those who didn’t quite achieve what they wanted or needed to find the right destination. Indeed, our support for every 2019 leaver will go on well beyond today; they’ve been a credit to Dulwich and deserve our on-going encouragement and advocacy.”
