## 2020 Results and Ranking

### The National Mathematics and Science College is delighted to celebrate another outstanding set of A Level examination results, despite the challenging background of the last few months.

Almost two-thirds (63%) of results this year were awarded an A*, with 91% of entries being awarded either an A* or an A grade.  Overall, three quarters of the students achieved straight A*/As, with two achieving 4 A*s

Alongside these impressive overall College statistics, the unbroken record of 100% A*/A in Mathematics has continued for another year; with 100% A*/A also achieved by all the candidates taking Further Mathematics and Biology this year!

Two students achieved their offers of places at Cambridge to read Natural Sciences and Engineering respectively; with a third achieving her place to read Electrical Engineering at Oxford.  All of our students have gone on to gain places at outstanding institutions with all of them gaining places at either Oxbridge or Russell Group Universities and almost all achieving their first choice of University.  Whilst the process this year has been far from typical, we are incredibly proud of the students, and the results that they have achieved.

## Ranking  2020

We have not been officially ranked due to our small cohort, but here is where we would rank for A level results for 2020.  Many thanks to our Source Best Schools UK 2021.

Principal, Dr Andy Kemp says:

“The quality of these results shows that The National Mathematics and Science College is indeed the preeminent place to be for any young person who is passionate about Mathematics and Science.  The teaching they have received over the last two years have set them on an exciting path to great success, and we wish them all the best for the next stage of their exciting journeys”.

## 2019 Results

The National Mathematics and Science College is delighted to announce its 2019 A Level results.

Of the total number of entries for A Levels this summer, an impressive 64% were graded A* or A, while 80% of grades were graded A*, A or B, which marks another year of impressive results.

Among the highest achievers are Rick 4 A* grades, who will be taking up his place at St Catherine’s Cambridge to read Natural Sciences, and Robbie  3 A* grades, who is to read physics at St Hugh’s Oxford.  Aidar also achieved 3 A* grades to secure his place to read chemistry at Edinburgh.

Leo was  delighted to achieve an ‘A’ for A level Maths as he hadn’t considered maths a strong subject in his previous school. He also picked up three gold medals in the national Olympiad competitions, two in Chemistry and another in Biology, where he finished in the top five per cent.

''A couple of years ago I couldn’t even have imagined taking maths at A-level, so to get an A is fantastic. I used to hate maths and I really struggled with it but now it’s my favourite subject. It’s all thanks to the teaching. They encouraged me to be the best I can be. The teachers really encouraged us with the Olympiads, I worked all sorts of hours on past papers and I always wanted to be better than the day before.''

## 2018 Results

Students achieved an outstanding 90% A*- B across all A Level subjects and 100% A*- A grades in Mathematics A Level.

Our full set of results are shown in the table below:

A*- B Mathematics Further Maths Physics Biology Chemistry
NatMatSci 100% 83% 83% 100% 80%
Nationally 65% 77% 50% 47% 54%

We are very proud of these outstanding results which reflect the excellent teaching and the hard work and commitment of our students who achieved 90% A*-B grades in the STEM subjects. With these results, students progressed to a variety of world-class universities, both in the UK and internationally, see the University Destinations of our Alumni.

Looking at our results, it is clear that the College is a very special place to study maths and science.
