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.— Finn
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.
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.”
