Bedford Modern School students consistently achieve outstanding A Level results year on year and 2019 is no exception. An impressive 18% of the grades received were A*, the highest for five years, and a fantastic 50% were A*-A and 94% were graded A*-C. This is particularly significant given that top grades nationally have gone down.
Four students obtained four A*s each. Adam Wu and Joseph Davies both studied Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths while Zachary Wilde achieved his grades in the same subjects but took Biology instead of Physics.
Top performing female student, Ritika Roy, achieved her four A*s in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Spanish and will now go on to study medicine at Kings College, London. She said: “I am ecstatic, rather overwhelmed and very surprised!” She joins a further 10 BMS students who have secured highly competitive places to study medicine or dentistry.
Bedford Modern School Headmaster, Alex Tate, commented: “This is a super set of results, and in the midst of syllabus change and an increase in unconditional offers this year the achievement is all the more impressive. That 28% of students obtained three A grades or better is simply tremendous.
“They have been a super year group who have contributed so much to the life of the school and helped to make BMS the special place that it is. They leave us extremely well prepared for the next stage of their lives and ready to meet the challenges of the future. I could not be more proud of them and wish them every success.”
