Hundreds of Uxbridge College students were onsite, celebrating some amazing individual grades across A-Levels, T-Levels and BTEC qualifications, after results were released on Thursday 17 August. Incredibly, the 2022/23 graduating year have further improved on the outstanding BTEC results for the previous year. Moreover, an amazing 97% A-Level students have passed (with high-grades in line with the national position).

Dylan McTaggart, HRUC Deputy CEO and Principal of Uxbridge College said:

“I am so proud of our students and staff – these BTEC, A-Level and T-Level results, across 14 different subject areas, evidence the ambition of our college family. Results like these are only possible if each and every student is supported by our highly passionate staff to succeed to their full potential – students achieve at this college! It’s great to celebrate our students’ efforts, reflected in such excellent results and support their progress onto their exciting next steps.  The College campus is buzzing with activity with Level 3 students busy confirming their choice of university course, or enrolling now onto one of the many Level 4 & 5 Higher Education courses at the College, and onto higher level apprenticeships – many within the HRUC Institute of Technology.’’  

As the first college in London to offer T-Levels, we have seen the numbers grow year-on-year and increased our offer which covers a number of occupational specialisms. We maintained a strong position with results this year including many Distinction and Merit grades and our largest provision – Education and Childcare saw a 100% pass rate – a fantastic achievement in only its second year of results! T-Level students have also benefited from significant industry placements in partnership with local, regional and national employers who have supported this exciting qualification which provides students with an opportunity to combine their college study with on-the-job experience.

BTEC results enjoyed another phenomenal year of success with initial indications that we continue to be one of the highest performing colleges for BTEC qualifications, improving on last year’s high results. With significant numbers of students choosing to study with us and benefitting from amazing facilities and the knowledge and skills of our industry specialist staff, we are delighted that so many students are progressing onto courses at the College and through our very own West London Institute of Technology, as well as other universities.
