A-level results show continued high standards and outstanding individual performances
Students at Coleg Sir Gâr are once again celebrating, achieving an excellent set of A-level results.
The percentage of A* to E grades was again extremely high at 99%, with 24 out of 27 subjects posting a 100% pass rate.
In addition, subjects in science and mathematics achieved high percentages of students obtaining the highest A* grade, including A-level biology (24%), physics (13%) and mathematics (24%).
Head of A-levels and Access, Mrs Orla Williams, said: “We are delighted at the improved success of our students and this reflects the hard work and effort of both students and staff over the last two years of study at the college.
“On behalf of all staff at the college we wish our learners every success as they go to the very best universities across the United Kingdom and into employment.”
Some outstanding performances include:
- Josie Sivak, a former pupil at Bryngwyn Comprehensive School, who achieved an A* in mathematics, an A* in biology and an A grade in chemistry. Josie will now study medicine at Cardiff University.
- Former Ysgol Y Strade pupil Eleanor Gower obtained an A* in geography, an A in sociology, an A in religious studies and an A grade in the Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate. Eleanor will be studying law at the University of Exeter.

- Conor Jones, a former Bryngwyn Comprehensive School pupil achieved an A* in mathematics, and A* in chemistry and an A grade in physics. Conor will now study natural sciences at Durham University.
- Edward Jepson-Randall, a former Queen Elizabeth High pupil obtained A* in mathematics, an A in further mathematics, a B in geography and a B grade in history and is considering his next steps on his career pathway.
- Sara Grennan, also from Coedcae Comprehensive School, achieved an A* in law, and A in History and an A grade in psychology. Sara will now study psychology at Cardiff University.

Dr Andrew Cornish, principal at Coleg Sir Gâr and Coleg Ceredigion added: “It is great to see our students performing consistently well and to a high standard.
“These A-Level results along with an equally strong performance in the Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification will see our learners continue to progress to higher education, both locally at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and throughout the United Kingdom to pursue their chosen careers.
“Equally impressive is the high grades achieved on our vocational programmes. These results, coupled with tremendous success in national and international skills competitions, will enable our vocational learners to progress to university, apprenticeships, higher level apprenticeships and future employment.”
Overall, this excellent performance reflects the progression of students from the strong foundations laid in partner schools in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and beyond. On behalf of the college, I wish them the very best for the future.”
