West Lancashire College students are celebrating after achieving fabulous BTEC results, with a record number achieving triple Distinction and star grades on the Extended Level 3 Diploma.
This year many students at West Lancashire College have achieved beyond predicted grades, in particular BTEC Performing Arts and BTEC Public Services students who all achieved Distinctions and Distinction Star.
BTEC qualifications provide a credible alternative to A Levels and studying an Extended Diploma gives you the same UCAS points as 3 A Levels. 1 in 4 undergraduates are now going through the BTEC route to get to university, offering a career related study route to higher education or employment.
Many students achieved D*D*D*, making them amongst the best performing BTEC students in the country, including; Lydia Elliott, Applied Science student, who has an unconditional place confirmed for Lancaster University in September. Lydia will be studying Earth and Environmental Science, which includes one years’ study abroad in New Zealand! Harry Burns, Performing Arts student is off to Cumbria University to study Musical Theatre and Richard Morris, Business student, will study Business & Facilities Management at Liverpool John Moores University.
Principal, at West Lancashire College, Denise Williamson said: “I would like to congratulate all of our students who have received their results. They have achieved some remarkable grades that are testament to their two years of hard work and the fantastic support of the staff at West Lancashire College.
This academic year has seen some of the best ever results for the College, and it makes me very proud to see our students moving on to universities or into jobs where they will be able to put their great skills and talents to good use.”
