GCSE English And Maths Resit Success
It was smiles all round (well, nearly) at Craven College for Maths and English GCSE resit results. A total of 436 and 438 of 16-18 year old College students resat their Maths and English GCSEs respectively. A further 76 and 48 students aged 19+ resat their Maths and English GCSEs, respectively. An average 92% pass rate was achieved.
Stephanie Tinsley, Interim Vice-Principal said, ’Congratulations to all of our students who have successfully retaken their Maths and/or English GCSEs. We recognise how important these results are and how hard the students have worked throughout the year.
Almost 30% of our students come from school to College without a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths. We have a well-structured and supportive resit programme including lessons, workshops and holiday revision sessions.’
Felicity Sreeves, from Cononley, was celebrating success and feeling ‘really good’ with Grade 5’s in both English and Maths, which will enable her to go on to study Childcare & Education Level 3.
Omar Elmahy, from Steeton, wasn’t expecting a pass but was ‘quite happy’ with his surprise results of Grade 5 in English and Grade 4 in Maths. He now has the luxury of deciding between options of science and media.
Louis Broadley, from Leeds, was overjoyed saying that his world had changed from ‘darkness to happiness!’ on receiving the news that he had passed his English and maths GCSEs achieving a Grade 4 in both. He will now continue with his Catering course at Craven College.
Jack Marsh, from Shipley, was ‘feeling really happy and ready to move on’. He is currently a mechanic with Audi and his next step is to move to London.
