Students at DLD College London have achieved an incredible set of results this August 2020 in what is most definitely one of the most challenging circumstances ever experienced in education. From a school that is non-selective, a huge 50% of all A Level results are at A*-A grade, 76% of results are at A*-B grade, 93% at A*-C and the overall pass rate was a very respectable 100%.
In addition to these superb A Level results, the BTEC students are also celebrating. Almost half (43%) of the BTEC Extended Diploma students achieved the equivalent to three A*-A grades at A Level, 91% achieved the equivalent of three A*-C grades and there was a 100% pass rate. For those studying BTEC Certificate, which is equivalent to one A Level, two thirds of grades were at Distinction level (D*-D) and they achieved 100% pass rate.
The International Foundation Programme students also had huge success and achieved a 98% pass rate with almost half of them achieving a ‘Distinction’ with a mark of 75% or more overall.
At GCSE, 45% of results were graded 9-7, 64% 9-6 and 96% 9-4. Overall, over a fifth of students achieved a 9 grade in at least one subject.
DLD is proud to have an extremely high entry rate to universities each year, placing students at prestigious institutions in an incredibly wide range of disciplines. This year is no exception with places at universities including Oxford, Durham, LSE, King’s College London and Imperial, plus the University of Waterloo in Canada.
This is proof that students and academic endorsements from DLD are unanimously respected and are greeted with high expectations. Our Personal Tutor system ensures that applicants are known well by their referees, who are able to guide them in making appropriate choices of course and institution.
Personal Tutors and Subject Tutors offer advice on how students can enhance their academic and extra-curricular profiles; this is necessary in order to compose a unique and impressive Personal Statement.
Throughout the academic year we provide a series of presentations which guide students through the process of completing the online form, and prepare them for the possibility of academic interviews by admissions tutors.
In addition, presentations are provided on broader themes to introduce students to the wider cultural and historical knowledge that will be expected of them at university.
A large proportion of DLD students secure places in the Russell Group (including the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge) each academic year. The Russell Group Programme offers presentations providing university-level scholarship by current staff and visitors to high-achieving students with aspirations to study particular academic disciplines.
