GCSE results: Record grades for Education Links

GCSE students across the country are bracing themselves for the new 1-9 grading scale

A vast majority of pupils were awarded at least one A* to A. Stellar results continued as a school best of 71 per cent A* to B and 91% A* to C grades were achieved.

St Albans High School for Girls celebrated record-breaking success this year, with more A* grades than ever and 92 per cent of girls achieving A*-A.

With 72 per cent of students achieving the new headline figure of English and Maths combined standard passes or more, and retaining its high EBacc pass rate at 40 per cent, the school is really over the moon, especially in light of the new GSCE standards introduced this year.

Head of School, Denise Fox said: "Once again, the staff and students of Fulham Cross Girls' School have worked exceptionally hard to achieve the results that will take our girls on to some of the best academic sixth form providers in the country".

Warning to Men Who Take Excessive Vitamin B
Results revealed that just over 800 of the study volunteers developed lung cancer over an average follow-up of six years. The results of this study were especially shocking for male smokers that use vitamin B supplements.

"Help with writing CVs and job applications, learning interview techniques we provide so much more including training in "soft skills" such as communication and team work through to nationally recognised qualifications, giving young people the confidence they need to achieve success".

But students, who also had to contend with tougher exams in core subjects, took the changes in their stride as two thirds passed English and Maths by achieving a C/4 grade.

More than half the year group gained at least 6 A* grades; just under a half gained at least 7 A*s; more than one third gained at least 8 A*s; and nearly one quarter gained at least 9 A*s.

There was a clean sweep of top grades for Xii Cin Lim, pictured above, who has achieved seven A* grades and three grade 9s - results that put her in the enviable position of choosing from a range of offers from independent schools across West London.

The delay appeared to be linked to numerous reviews that found the AI appeared to struggle with natural language voice commands. The AI also responds to contextual, cross-application commands such as, "Send the photo just taken to Mom".

She said: "We've been on a high since our A-Level results last week so to see equally impressive GCSE results is truly fantastic".

"I am so pleased for them and I am of course very lucky to have such an awesome group of teachers who are so committed to inspiring their potential".

This year students have become the guinea pigs of the revised examination systems created to make it harder to score a good pass at GCSE, by bringing back the reliance on end-of-course final exams as the measurement system.

Out of the 25 subjects studied half achieved 90 per cent or more A*-C grades, with notable achievements of 100 per cent in biology, Spanish and photography, and 94 per cent in PE, chemistry and physics.
