GCSE students at Loughborough Grammar School have received a vintage set of GCSE results. It was a nervous moment for the 169 boys in Year 11 as they opened their envelopes, because this was the first year that numerical grades have been used – in English Language and English Literature.
In the subjects retaining alphabetical grades, 64% of papers were graded A*/A or equivalent, while 65% of the new numerical grades were between 6 & 9. A large number of boys received outstanding grades, with 16 boys achieving 9 A*s or better, and an extraordinary 55 achieving at least 5 A*s.
A fantastic achievement for all of Year 11, but particular mention goes to:
David Bernstein, Young Engineer of the Year award winner, achieved 9 A*s whilst balancing his studies with the development of the E1 vest invention.
Twins Ben and Oliver Rouse achieved 9 A*s each alongside competing in National Cross Country Championships.
Oliver Carruthers gained a full house of 9 A* grades.
Jayan Patel achieved 10 GCSEs with 9A*s and 1A
Tom Khalid achieved 10 GCSEs with 9A*s and 1A
Joe Bursell earnt himself 9 A* grades.
Rohan Kapur achieved 10 A*s in his GCSEs and is pictured with Hartej Saund who gained 6 A*s, 4 As and 2 Bs respectively.
Oliver Rofe-Euden’s hard work has been rewarded with 10 A* grades.
David Dudeney achieved 11 GCSEs including 10 A*s.
