The hall in the immediate post-release buzz

From the moment the first numbers graced the big screen in the hall, it became evident that this was going to be a promising A-Levels result release. Overall, the cohort has done brilliantly, with 739 of our students achieving at least 5 distinctions in their subjects. Additionally, 66% of the batch achieved at least 3 H2 distinctions (compared to 64% for the class of 2015), with 55% getting distinctions in all 4 of their H2 subjects. 344 students (28%) succeeded in getting a perfect University Admissions Score (UAS) of 90, while the mean UAS remained high at 85 points out of 90.

The number of students who achieved 5 or more distinctions

With regard to individual subjects, the cohort attained stellar results overall in Chemistry, Economics, Biology, Mathematics and Literature in English – for each of these subjects, roughly 3 in 4 students scored a distinction. The batch’s performance in Geography and Physics was also commendable, with approximately 7 in 10 of each subject’s takers attaining a distinction. Additionally, History maintained its distinction rate of 60%. Most notably, the batch broke the 50% distinctions benchmark for General Paper with an outstanding 56% of distinctions, a record which left one GP teacher in particular ‘exhilarated’ at the results.

In all, the performances were outstanding once again, in line with a Rafflesian tradition of excelling. The batch of 2015 has certainly done the school proud with their hard work and results. Raffles Press would like to congratulate the seniors for their outstanding efforts.
