Students across both Bath College campuses have been nervously opening their GCSE results this morning.
Harvey has been studying Level 2 Childcare and has passed both his English and Maths, so will be going on to Level 3 Childcare.
Students who study at the College often take GCSE Maths and/or English alongside their studies to maximise their employability or future study options.
He said: “I was hoping to pass but not expecting to, and I’ve passed both!”
Megan, Katie and Luci all came back to college as mature students to take their GCSEs.
Megan got a 4 in Maths and 6 in English and can now apply to do an Access Course so she can become a teacher.
Katie got 11 GCSEs and went onto her A-Levels when she was at school but failed her maths so made the decision to come back to college to take it as an adult and got a 4.
Electrical students Dom and Josh were delighted when they opened their GCSE English results. Dom got a 6 and is now progressing onto the Level 2 and Josh got a 5 and is off to do an Electrical apprenticeship.
Luci left school at 15 so came to college to do her Maths and English GCSEs in which she got 5 and 8 and is now off to do a Maternity course at Swansea University before training to be a midwife.
Stuart King, Head of English and Maths said: “We are very proud of our learners who have worked so hard for their GCSEs.”
“Many of them are studying alongside a full-time course, apprenticeship or full-time job, which can be really tough.”
“It’s been fantastic to see so many smiles across our campuses today.”
GCSE results day can be a stressful time for many, so Bath College has had careers advisers on hand to talk to anyone who picked up results today to offer them impartial advice about what their next steps are.
