On Thursday 13 August, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) reported its A Level results for 2020. The overall A Level pass rate was 99% and of the 16 A Level subjects offered at the college, 15 subjects achieved 100%. 68% of students gained A*-C grades, up nearly 3% from last year.
This year saw unprecedented circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic, with teaching and learning moving almost entirely to virtual remote access from 23 March onwards and for the first time exams were cancelled.
As in previous years, hundreds of our students are expected to be going on to university, including Russell Group universities.
Dr Jason Jones, Deputy Principal and CEO at RuTC, commented, “This year has been an exceptional and challenging year for our students as they quickly adapted to a new way of learning. We are so proud of our students and I am delighted with the results they have achieved.
“As in previous years, our 2020 A level results place us once again as one of the top-performing Further Education colleges and largest providers of A Level programmes in London. These results are a testament to the hard work and determination of our students, the support of their families and the dedication and commitment of our excellent staff, and I would like to thank everyone for their great efforts and consistently high standards.
“We wish all our students the best in achieving their ambitions in the future and are looking forward to welcoming our new ambitious students this September.”
