QPCS Exam Results 2013
A Level Results - 2013
48% of the grades are A*/A or BTEC Distinction
91% of the grades are A* - C:
Overall pass rate: 100%.
19 out of our 71 A level students achieved at least 3 A grades.
All of our BTEC Business students achieved at least a double Distinction.
The students (and their teachers) worked so hard, the results were well deserved.
A Level in the top 10% ~ nationally
ALPS (A Level Performance System) is the national body which records and analyses the student examination performance of sixth forms in schools and colleges across the country. All 16-19 institutions are ranked in order of academic performance on a scale and Queens Park has been placed 67th which puts the school in the top 10% nationally. This is an excellent achievement and we have been sent a certificate to mark this accolade.
Sixth Form League Tables
QPCS has done so very well. We are now placed in an overall second place in all Brent schools for A level performance and our result scores for the ‘facilitating’ subjects for AAB grades places us as the best.
The national figure for this measure is just over 15% whilst the school’s figure is 30%. This excellent rating is so heartening for our school and demonstrates the commitment to high standards and the excellence of teaching on the courses. Parents can see more on the sixth form league tables by clicking on the DfE website link below.
It is also worth noting that 48% of the grades achieved by the 2013 cohort were A* or A. The overall sixth form performance issued by the DfE (January 21014) shows excellent progress and attainment by the students.
Year 11 Early Entry GCSE English Examinations
The Year 11 students have been issued the results of their early entry GCSE English examinations as taken in November 2013 and the outcomes are most positive. 64% of students achieved a C or above.
The current climate for GCSE examination is one of ‘tightening up’ upon the marking of papers and scrutinising the use of spelling, punctuation and grammar. It is the case that the examinations are becoming harder for the students.
I am very pleased that the English results are very positive and show an upward trend which is most pleasing. The students have been given their individual results which demonstrate for the majority, a result for one of their GCSE subjects which is already now completed. This provides an excellent platform to build other subjects around and to incentivise continued progress. The students have worked hard to achieve this first step and I would also like to thank the English Faculty, led by Ms Rupchand, for working so hard with the students to maintain and improve standards. Well done to all.
