2018 Cambridge A-level results are out

“The Cambridge International programme is widely regarded as one of the best pre-university courses in the world and to have our students gain an overall pass rate of 99.6% for all A Level subjects is outstanding”

Cambridge A Level results for 2018 have been released showing an excellent academic year for ACG Strathallan, on par with 2017’s strong performances, according to Principal Danny O’Connor.

Overall, the school’s pass rates are:

  • A Level: 99.6%
  • AS Level: 86.9%

Mr O’Connor said the school was incredibly proud of what the students have achieved.

“The Cambridge International programme is widely regarded as one of the best pre-university courses in the world and to have our students gain an overall pass rate of 99.6% for all A Level subjects is outstanding. I’m sure they will all be proud and excited about their plans for the future.

“It is a credit to the hard work and effort they put into their studies over their time at ACG Strathallan and the incredible support they have received from our dedicated team of teachers.”

While results are still being analysed, some subjects and individuals have emerged as standout performances.
