A Level Results – 10 August 2021
Many congratulations to all Year 13 students at Lady Margaret School for their excellent A Level results this summer!
Our Year 13 students have worked incredibly hard and these results reflect their range of talents, their focus on their studies this year and their hard work through a great deal of uncertainty and change.
Students have experienced a great deal of disruption to their studies over the last two years, with periods of Lockdown in both Years 12 and 13 because of Covid-19. The cancellation of this year’s public examinations has meant that this year’s A Level results have been awarded based on assessments completed at school and assessed by teaching staff. School assessments were completed thoroughly and thoughtfully, with robust procedures in place to make sure all grades submitted had been assessed based on a clear set of evidence. Despite the changes to A Level assessment this year, our students should feel very proud of their grades. All the work they have done in the Sixth Form here at Lady Margaret School will ensure that they are ready for studying at university level this Autumn.
Overall 94.2% of grades were A*-C and 78.6% of grades attained were A*-B. 50.6% of grades were A*-A.
Twenty-four girls attained at least three A/A* grades at A Level, which is a fantastic achievement. There were ten A* grades in English, eight in History, nine in Maths, and three in Economics and five in History. In Economics, English Literature, Fine Art, French, History of Art, Further Mathematics, Music, Physics, Politics, Religious Studies and Spanish no student attained below a C grade.
