A Level Results 2020
In this year like no other, pupils at Teddies received their A Level results today.
The Warden said, ‘Despite widespread concern about the algorithm used to calculate this year’s grades, I am pleased to report that the vast majority of grades awarded at St Edward’s are in line with expectations and will allow our pupils to progress to their chosen university courses. I would like to thank the academic team for their considerable and careful work to submit robust, evidence-backed predicted grades, such that only a very small percentage of grades have been moderated.’
‘I would also like to commend all our A Level pupils for their hard work over the past two years, and to wish them the very best for their next steps. As always, we are working with any IB or A Level candidates still awaiting university decisions to ensure that they achieve the best possible outcomes, and we continue to press the IB Organisation for the results of our grading review.’
84% of A Level grades were awarded at A*-B (79% in 2019) and 55% at A*/A (46% in 2019).
