Merchiston continues to excel academically

Published Tuesday 3rd of September 2013 10:12:28 AM

A level examination results day saw the usual flurry of activity in School today as many of last year�s Upper Sixth leavers came back to Merchiston to open their results envelopes.

There were many happy faces: Merchiston�s A level pass rate this year was 100%. Moreover, of the 268 individual candidate results 136 (51%) gained grades A*/A; the School�s combined A*, A, and B grade pass rate was a highly gratifying 79%.

Boys in the Lower Sixth year group also took AS exam units; these results will contribute towards their A level grades next summer.
Andrew Hunter, Headmaster comments, �This is always a very important day for the boys. For some, it is the culmination of a 10 year journey at Merchiston. Others have had shorter journeys. I am delighted with the quality of the A level results. They speak volumes for the staff and how �the boys are inspired to do the best they can possibly do�. The combination of the natural brightness of many of these boys, their own hard work, and the attention, care and professionalism from staff has resulted in another set of superb results.�
