    Congratulations to all Merchiston families and staff who received A Level and UCAS outcomes today. This year’s process has been complex, sometimes gruelling and certainly unique - and we are proud that in these volatile times, we have maintained our strong record of delivery for our pupils.
    This year 75% of our UCAS cohort achieved their first choice university with a further 15% achieving their second choice. Others have been making good progress in Clearing and Adjustment, with some very good opportunities available this year. As things stand, of the total cohort 62% will be attending a Russell Group university (along with Bath, St Andrews and leading international institutions, included for statistical purposes) - in line with our excellent outcome last year.
    Our A Level results include an impressive 47% at A-A*, 75% A-B and 92% A-C, and these follow hot on the heels of a strong set of SQA results achieved last week, in which the A-B rate was 89%.
    We would like to thank all staff for all their hard work during this challenging period; and, after the disruptions of last term, we particularly look forward to welcoming last year’s Upper Sixth back to Merchiston in the near future, to pass on our congratulations in person. Well done one and all.
