UCTC announces record-breaking A-level results

Uckfield Community Technology College (UCTC) has reported a record-breaking number of top grades in the A-level results announced today (August 18).

Students achieved the highest percentage ever of A* and A grades.

A total of 11.5% of all the grades were A* and 28.1% of the grades were A* or A, making this a record-breaking year with the best set of top grades in the history of the college.

A spokesperson for UCTC said: “With universities demanding very high grades, the competition to achieve is stiffer than ever and these students have risen to that challenge superbly.”

“They all thoroughly deserve their success and we wish them every happiness for the future.

“We are also delighted with the way our staff and parents have worked so closely to inspire and support them and they deserve a special thank you and well done, too.”
