The GCSE courses are free for those who have not previously achieved grade C or equivalent.

ACRES is delighted with the success of its students who took their GCSEs this year. There was an overall 100% pass rate.

Of 18 GCSE English students, 94.4% passed at Grade 4 and above. One student achieved Level 9 which is higher than the old A*.

Of 37 GCSE Maths students, 70.3% achieved Grade 4 and above.

The college said the GCSEs were more difficult this year with, for example, an increase in content for Maths of more than a third more work. Both subjects had pass rates that were well above other similar adult learning centres.

A spokesperson said: “Needless to say, we are very proud of all of our students this year.”
