RESULTS DAY: UVI PUPILS SURPASS EXPECTATIONS

Published Tuesday 21st of August 2018 04:08:57 PM

Merchiston’s Leavers woke up to another excellent set of A Level results this morning. The reformed A Levels continued to emphasise increased stretch and challenge; and we are delighted that Merchiston has once again delivered excellence in this new context, going way beyond the national average across the board. As a school it is our goal to add value to each and every boy, and we are delighted that, in almost all cases, the boys surpassed their own personal targets and exceeded the ALIS predictions made by Durham University. A formidable 50% of grades are at A* or A at A Level or Advanced Higher, including a full 20% of the the total at the A* level – this is clear testament to the confidence with which Merchiston staff and boys have engaged with this new ‘gold standard’ at a time of ongoing anxiety within school assessment. This builds on a fabulous set of SQA results earlier in the month, not least the superb achievement of ‘straight As’ across all of our presentations at Advanced Higher. Well done to all involved.
