Outstanding exam results

IMG_0208

 

Elgin Academy students have enjoyed a hugely successful set of exam results this year, including all-time high numbers of young people achieving at Higher level.

We await the ‘Insight’ analysis of exam data in September, but, using the ‘traditional’ measures, Higher attainment in S5 is at an all-time high. The percentage of the S4 cohort achieving 5 or more Highers by the end of S5 is 26%, 6% higher than the previous record, set last year. The percentage gaining 3 or more Highers by the end of S5 is 45%, 7% higher than the previous record, set in 2013. The percentage gaining at least one higher by the end of S5 is 66%, 6% higher than the previous record, set last year.

Across the Senior Phase (S4-S6), young people have achieved very well. It is important to note that not everyone can achieve, for example,  5 ‘A’s, but that many have achieved their own personal best.

S4 results overall are better than predicted, whilst S6 results are very good, with equal highest or send highest ever percentages have been set for those leaving S6.

In terms of pupils achieving ‘A’s across the board, there are some remarkable successes. Nine students have achieved 5 ‘A’s at Higher by the end of S5: Aimal Ahmad Khan, Hazel Bayliss, Ross Beveridge, Arnav Mehta, Murray Robinson, Rhona Sword and Joe Welsh all gained 5 ‘A’s this year, whilst Katrina Raine gained 5 ‘A’s to add to the 2 ‘A’s she achieved in previous years, and Caitlyn Gallagher gained 4 ‘A’s this year and a ‘B’ at Advanced Higher to add to the 2 ‘A’s at Higher and 1 ‘A’ at Advanced Higher she had achieved in previous years.

Seventeen students achieved 6 As at National 5 in S4: Charlotte Bevan, Anais Bliault, Tomas Coelho, Morven Cumming, Ethan Hew, Daniella Holder, Eilidh Maclean, Lauren Moggach, Nathan Moir, Bailey Mone, Rebecca Nally, Ryan Padley, Gemma Shaw, Evan Sutherland, Maria Waszyrowska, Frieda Welsh and Rhys Williams.

In S6 a remarkable number of 6 students gained 3 ‘A’s at Advanced Higher: Zmarak Ahmad Khan (who also gained another ‘A’ at Higher), Anna Campbell, Mathew Coulson, Innes Mackay, Alasdair Robinson and Rhiannon Smith. Hannah Smit gained 5 ‘A’s at Higher in one sitting.

Some students will have been disappointed by results which are perhaps less than they expected. senior staff were on hand to provide advice, whilst guidance staff will work with students at the beginning of next week to look afresh at course choices. In addition, the Skills Development Scotland helpline is available to provide advice: 0800 100 8000.

We are very keen to support all our students and our congratulations go to those who have achieved what they hoped for, whilst we will help and advise those who haven’t achieved what they were hoping for.

The vital support of a very hardworking and committed staff was essential to this year’s success, and our thanks and appreciation goes to the staff of Elgin Academy. In addition, the support of parents is crucial to success, and is very much appreciated.
