GCSE Results 2012
Published: Thursday 23 August, 2012 at 14:00 BST
We are delighted to report on another very pleasing set of GCSE results for Framlingham College. Over 30% of candidates secured 7 or more A* and A grades, with over 14% achieving more than 5 A*s. Every single candidate achieved 5 or more A*-C passes, and 76% of all grades were B or above.
There are some individual performances that are worthy of particular note. Kathryn Twentyman and Andrei Balalau both achieved a clean sweep of 11 A*s, while one of Susannah Reid’s 8 A*s, in Chemistry, was secured without dropping a single mark out of the 400 on offer; an extraordinary achievement. Headmaster Paul Taylor said ‘we are again delighted to see so many very strong performances, providing further evidence of the added value that the College provides to a broad range of candidates’.

A-Level Results 2012

2012 again saw another strong set of A level results, which were largely in line with expectations. Importantly, the vast majority of our students secured places at their chosen universities (which is no mean achievement in this very competitive year), and they should be congratulated on their achievements. A full statistical breakdown of results accompanies this page.
There were some outstanding individual performances, and over a quarter of all students gained at least the much vaunted threshold of AAB (universities have seen a cut in the basic numbers they are allowed to admit, but this year they are allowed to accept as many high-flying students with grades of at least AAB as they can admit). In a school with a broad academic intake this is a fine achievement, and we are equally delighted with the large number of students who secured Bs or Cs when such grades represent the peak of their potential.
