Best A levels and IGCSE Exams Results Ever
St Andrew’s Senior School, Turi congratulates our Year 13 and Year 11 students for their record breaking performance in this year’s A Level and IGCSE exams.
At A level, Year 13 students set a new school record by achieving 71% of all A level grades at the top A*, A or B grades, improving from the previous record of 69% set in 2016. Equally impressive is the 92% A*-C grade achievement – which also sets a new school record.
Particular congratulations go to Piriye Whyte, Karen Wandia, Rosine Sanginga, Jeremiah Omino, Humphrey Omiat, Bridgid Mogeni and Eric Kibogo who achieved A or A* in all three of their A level subjects. A total of 21 Year 13 students achieved three grades at grade B or higher.
Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Economics, Geography, History, ICT, Religious Studies, Drama and Sociology all achieved a 100% A* – C pass rate at A level. At AS level we are very pleased that Year 12 achieved an A-C AS level pass rate of 72%, just beating the 70% achieved by this year’s record setting A level group when they sat AS exams in 2016.
