STUDENTS at Queen Mary’s College (QMC) have once again shone on results day when they picked up their A-Level grades.

The college has for the fourth year in a row seen a progression in the results it has obtained with 77 per cent of students getting A* - C grades.

There were some great results for students, including Lauren McGivern, who will be heading to Oxford to study chemistry.

The 18-year-old studied biology, chemistry, maths and further maths while at QMC and received two A* and two A’s.

“I am so happy with my results I wasn’t expecting to do so well,” said the Oakley teenager.

“I studied really hard ahead of the exams and had great support from all the staff here.”

When asked why chemistry she added: “I want to become a researcher, in what yet I am not sure, but Oxford has incredible facilities and I am really looking forward to starting it.”

For Anya Bailey, she thought that she had ‘completely messed up’ her exams but ended up getting straight A’s in drama, history and law.

The 18-year-old said: “I remember there was a group of us who came out of the exams crying because we thought we had just failed.

“So I was shocked when I opened my results to see three A’s I couldn’t believe it.”

The teenager from Odiham will now head to Exeter University to study law.

Principal Ali Foss once again praised a great set of results for her students.

For four years in a row QMC has been among the top performing colleges across the country and Mrs Foss praised the efforts of students and staff alike.

She said: ““We want to make our students feel as confident as possible going into their exams and I believe this is what helps them gain the best results possible.”
