We are still awaiting information from our vocational awarding body.
A-level students at Derby College's Joseph Wright Centre have won a clutch of awards in the British Olympiad competitions for Maths and Sciences.
Thirteen students have been presented with awards for Maths, Chemistry or Biology having completed papers in the subjects set by national bodies. They completed the timed exams at the College which were then marked and submitted for verification.
Derby College is celebrating an increase in the number of students achieving higher grades (A* to B) in the first A level results published since the major curriculum re-structure.
A record 30% of A level students at the Joseph Wright sixth form centre gained the higher grades and the overall pass rate was just over 96%. Points per entry has also increased to 27.5 compared with 23.7 last year.
