Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.
A Level Results Day (2019)

More than 600 eager High Pavement Sixth Form students logged on this morning to find out their AS/A level results. It’s something they’ve worked hard for and today their wait was finally over, with 250 second year students receiving their final grades and progressing to their next steps.

Among those cel­e­brat­ing their suc­cess is Finn Old­field, 18, from Huck­nall, who secured his place at the pres­ti­gious Uni­ver­si­ty of Cam­bridge to study Chem­i­cal Engi­neer­ing, after receiv­ing an impres­sive three A*s and B grade in Chem­istry, Maths, Fur­ther Maths, and Physics.

I’m still in dis­be­lief about my results. Ini­tial­ly, I nev­er con­sid­ered a uni­ver­si­ty like Cam­bridge, but the sup­port and encour­age­ment from my lec­tur­ers helped me to believe in myself and my ability. 

I want to thank my lec­tur­ers, who have been bril­liant, with spe­cial cred­it to my Maths lec­tur­er Dan, who encour­aged me to take on Fur­ther Maths as an addi­tion­al A Lev­el sub­ject and my tutor Zoe, who sup­port­ed me through the uni­ver­si­ty appli­ca­tion process. 

It’s daunt­ing to be mov­ing on to uni, but I’m ready for a new chal­lenge and I’m excit­ed for the future.

Aspir­ing singer/​songwriter Katie Bent­ley, 18, from Gedling, is pro­gress­ing to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hert­ford­shire to study Song­writ­ing and Music Pro­duc­tion, after achiev­ing A, B, C grades in Geog­ra­phy, Pho­tog­ra­phy and Politics.

I’m real­ly hap­py with my results and so glad to be going off to uni­ver­si­ty to study a course I real­ly love. 

It’s been a real­ly dif­fi­cult time through the pan­dem­ic but my lec­tur­ers have been so sup­port­ive and they still man­aged to make the lessons and my expe­ri­ence at Col­lege an enjoy­able one. I’ve met so many great new peo­ple, who I know will be friends for life. My time at High Pave­ment has pre­pared me for uni and I can’t wait to start my next steps. 

 — Katie

Petru-Mihai Craci­un, 17, achieved A*, A, A in Physics, Com­put­er Sci­ence and Maths. He is pro­gress­ing to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Not­ting­ham to study Com­put­er Sci­ence with Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence MSci at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Nottingham. 

Petru Mihai Craciun

My results exceed­ed my expec­ta­tions. I’m so pleased I got what I need­ed and I’m excit­ed and eager to get stuck in to my new course at university. 

 — Petru

Head of Not­ting­ham Col­lege High Pave­ment Sixth Form, Adam Beaze­ley, said: I am so proud of our hard work­ing A Lev­el stu­dents and lec­tur­ers, who have faced some excep­tion­al chal­lenges over the last two aca­d­e­m­ic years. 

Our ded­i­cat­ed teach­ers and sup­port staff have gone above and beyond to over­come these chal­lenges, deliv­er­ing online con­tent, face-to-face and hybrid teach­ing, to help sup­port our stu­dents to achieve some fan­tas­tic results. 

Today is all about cel­e­brat­ing and mark­ing this impor­tant mile­stone for our stu­dents. We wish them well on the next step of their jour­ney, which for many is a high­er-lev­el course at Col­lege or uni­ver­si­ty, a high­er or degree appren­tice­ship, or employment. 

It’s such an excit­ing time for our stu­dents and we wish them every suc­cess for the future.”
