New VIc college celebrates best ever A-Level results
Students at NewVIc college in Plaistow have bucked the national trend by achieving their highest pass rate yet.
The Plaistow sixth-form recorded a 96 per cent pass rate - and a total of 89 A* and A grades.
Forty per cent of the candidates took the ‘facilitating’ subjects as required by the elite universities. These include English, biology, and mathematics.
Among the relieved teenagers were Custom House students Emily Knight and Rosey Whelan, both 19.
They each achieved a distinction and two merits in their BTEC extended diplomas in applied science and will go to Middlesex University to study psychology with criminology.
