Students at Lincoln University Technical College (UTC) have achieved excellent A Level results in the school’s specialist subjects; engineering, maths, science and technology.
UTC students achieved a 100% A Level pass rate with 50% of results graded from A*-B. Roughly half of the students in the sixth form study a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering, equivalent to 3 A Levels, and 100% of students on this course passed with 60% achieving a distinction grade.
“This has been a very difficult year for us all but particularly for examination year students. Therefore, we are particularly pleased that despite numerous challenges our students have achieved excellent and very well-deserved A Level results.” said the Principal of Lincoln UTC, John Morrison.
“I am very confident that the students who aspire to attend university will have achieved the grades needed to be accepted onto their preferred course, despite the unusual circumstances. Both the students and the teaching team have worked very hard, and we look forward to seeing our students succeed in the next stage of their education and career.”
UTC student Jay Wyatt-Jones achieved AAAA* in maths, physics, biology and chemistry. He will begin a four-year degree programme in Physics MPhys, BSc at the University of Leeds in September. Jay said: “I’m so happy to have achieved results that will allow me to take the next step on my dream career path. I’ve studied at the UTC for the last four years, and the specialist focus on science and maths has allowed me to thrive in the subjects that are most important to me.”
Paul Birt, Chair of Governors at Lincoln UTC and Head of HR – Smart Infrastructure Division at Siemens GB&I said: “It has been another tremendous year for Lincoln UTC and its students. To have achieved such outstanding results is remarkable, especially considering the impact of the pandemic on examinations and circumstances for students this year.
I would like to thank our excellent staff for their dedication and inspiration whilst congratulating our students on their results.”
