Here at New College, we’re used to our students achieving some amazing grades, but two students this year achieved the holy grail; 3 A* grades each!
Casey, who is off to study Business and Economics at Manchester University in September, achieved an A* in Psychology, Economics and Applied Business.
Casey, said “the support at New College is amazing. I have dyslexia and the study and support staff have been amazing and a massive help, especially Andrea.
“I started at New College a couple of months late after transferring from Greenhead, and the staff and students were really welcoming and I really settled in quickly.
“I will miss my time at New College and I will especially miss my friends and teachers- especially my economics teacher who was a massive inspiration to me.”
Our second ‘triple A*’ student is Shauna, who did so well in her exams that she has been accepted on to the very prestigious Msc Biology course at Sheffield University. Usually, you would be expected to complete the Bsc before attempting the Masters course, however, Shauna wowed the University so much that she’ll be starting straight away at the higher level.
Shauna achieved A* in Biology, Psychology and Statistics, as well as gaining a Distinction* in Sport and completing her Maths AS Level. Shauna scored 100% in her Psychology A2 exam, which is a phenomenal achievement and almost unheard of.
Shauna said “All the staff here at Huddersfield New College have made my time here as successful as it was. My tutor, Veronica Gabanski, was especially supportive.”
Veronica, Shauna’s Personal Tutor, said “Shauna is one of the best students I have had the pleasure of teaching. Her enthusiasm and attitude were exemplary and her place at Sheffield University reflects this.”
We’re always proud of our students’ achievements, but felt that these two deserved a special mention.
