GCSE Results 2020
After all the uncertainty over the grading system, the Year Eleven pupils were relieved and delighted with their results.
3 pupils achieved a maximum of all 9 grades and a further 11 pupils achieved all 9 and 8 grades. 42% of all grades were 9 or 8. 29 pupils achieved all 9-7 grades and 53 pupils achieved 9-7 grades in at least 8 subjects. Two-thirds of all grades were 9-7 (the equivalent of an A grade at GCSE previously).
With such impressive results, the RGS Year Eleven pupils were more than ready to start their A Level and BTEC courses this Septem
ber and they were very well prepared having already completed ‘bridging’ courses in the Trinity term which has given them a ‘head-start’ for the Sixth Form.
Headmaster, John Pitt, commented: “It has been such a ‘roller-coaster ride’ for everyone who was due to sit Public Examinations in 2020 and the pupils can now hold their heads high and be pleased to have achieved their A Levels, BTEC qualifications and GCSEs at a very high level. The pupils have worked extremely hard and the teachers have been very committed in supporting them, including during ‘lockdown’, and so we should congratulate everyone for their many achievements.”
