Students at Lincoln University Technical College (UTC) have beaten the national average for A Level results this year.
Results show that the year group as a whole was particularly strong in terms of the number of students achieving top grades, with 30% of pupils receiving either A* or A grades.
In engineering, a specialist area of study at the UTC, all Level 3 BTEC students passed, receiving the equivalent of three A Levels. 70% of the students achieved Distinction grades, and 30% received Merit grades. Not one student achieved less than a Merit.
"It is another good year of A Level results for Lincoln UTC," says principal John Morrison. "Our students have worked incredibly hard and should be pleased with their results. The UTC’s teaching team wish them all the best as they move onto university, apprenticeships and employment."
Paul Birt, Chair of Board of Governors added: >"Once again Lincoln UTC Engineering students have achieved a great set of results with 100% receiving either Distinction or Merit awards. I believe this is testimony to the efforts of all the staff and students and to the UTC model itself.>"
Of the students first through the door to collect their results this morning, three students were particularly pleased with their results. Jessica Wyatt received an A* in Maths and A’s in both Physics and Chemistry. Henry Barker and Emily Hird both received 3 A’s in Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science.
Opened in 2014, Lincoln UTC is the city’s specialist Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics college educating 14 to 19-year-olds.
