AS (Advanced Subsidiary)
Year 12 AS results

For most students the AS exams represent a half way stage towards full A levels. They are used more as an indicator of progress than a set of final results, so relatively less analysis is done nationally.

There were some exceptional performances at Malton from Year 12, and the overall performance indicates that we should be in for more excellent results when the students complete their A level courses next year.

Some headlines:

  • There were 35 grade A's, spread across 13 of the 18 subjects entered, shared between 17 students.
  • Three students achieved all grade A’s – Jack Davies and Russell Goddard each achieved five grade A’s, and Bobby Goodwill four grade A’s. Oliver Peck achieved 3 A’s and 2 B’s.
  • Everyone passed in at least one subject.
