Not to be outshone, AS-Level students performed highly with a 100% achievement rate in the subjects of Digital Technology, English Literature, Geography, Nutrition and Food Science and Religious Studies.  All AS-Level students also performed strongly in STEM subjects.

Some successful AS-Level students include:

Stephen Rogan, Head of Faculty for Computing, Design and Academic Studies at Southern Regional College commented:

“The excellent A-Level results achieved by our students at the College reflects the effort and commitment they have made to their learning, under the guidance and support of staff. 

Students faced a continuously evolving and challenging learning environment, and all have adapted in order to achieve these wonderful results.  I am very proud of our students’ achievements, and it is a real testament to the hard work and effort of the staff and students that we have performed so well again this year.”
