A Level & Pre-U Results

We are exceptionally proud of the Upper Sixth of 2021, who have received a fantastic set of results at the end of a tumultuous 18 months which has seen them face huge disruption and uncertainty throughout their studies. They met every challenge with flair and positivity and worked hard right until the end. With the cancellation of exams and following government guidance, the College established an open and ambitious system of assessment to produce Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs), which combined exam room ‘summer assessments’ with a range of evidence of pupil achievement from throughout the year. The outcomes for Marlburians were very strong, with 32% A* and 75% A*A at A level/Pre-U. The Extended Project Qualification continues to thrive at Marlborough, with 51% of projects awarded an A* grade. As ever, each pupil should be recognised and commended for their individual achievements. Credit must go to the Common Room too, who worked tirelessly to support the pupils and the process. 92% of our leavers achieved their first-choice university with 88% of the cohort accepting an offer from one of the Russell Group universities. The prevailing conditions have not dented Marlburians’ traditional enthusiasm for the world, with pupils heading to a range of universities notable for its breadth; the United States, Canada, Oxford, Cambridge and universities across the UK featuring on a long list, which also includes 117 different degree choices. We wish them all the best of luck for their next steps.
