Students and staff members at DLD College London are triumphant today (10 August), as they received the best ever set of results in the school’s 90 year history.
The jubilant cohort of students obtained their historic results from the multi award-winning Westminster Bridge-based school this morning. At A Level, the students achieved a 100% pass rate with 82% of grades at A*-B representing a 6% increase on last year’s excellent results. Of those students that took three or more A Levels, over a third achieved straight A*-A grades and almost two thirds achieved all A*-B grades.
One student who excelled, Luca Pearson, age 18 attained an impressive three A* grades in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics and will now go on to study Physics at UCL. Another, Sofiia Kruglikova, achieved four A* grades in Computer Science, Further Mathematics, Physics and Russian and will now progress to Imperial College London to study Aeronautical Engineering.
DLD College London Principal, Irfan Latif commented, “These results are truly remarkable and testimony to the diligence, perseverance and resilience of our students and outstanding staff. We are very proud of our high performing and conscientious students for these excellent results. Their hard work, together with the vast range of experiences and opportunities offered to students here at DLD College London, has greatly helped to prepare them for the next stage in their journey of lifelong learning.
“These outstanding results, in addition to the numerous national awards we have won this year, are testimony to the selfless work of our outstanding staff who provide a world-class holistic education every single day at DLD. The results also reflect our students’ tenacity, adaptability and sheer determination to succeed, even in the midst of a global pandemic. We have all learnt so much during this unprecedented and challenging time of our history – lessons that we were not expecting but will stand us in good stead as we move forward. As our students take up coveted places in prestigious universities across the UK and around the world, we wish them the very best of luck and look forward to hearing about their continued achievements and exploits as DLD Alumni.”
The College has a lot to celebrate not only at A Level but also at BTEC, where students once again achieved an outstanding pass rate of 100% with 50% of BTEC Extended Diploma achieving the equivalent of three A*-A grade A Levels, and the International Foundation Programmes (IFP) where students achieved an exemplary 100% pass rate.
