A Level Results 2017
17th August, 2017
Building on a truly outstanding portfolio of SQA results earlier this month, Merchiston’s Leavers woke up to another excellent set of A level results on Thursday morning. A full 47% of our pupils achieved the A* or A grade, with a deeply impressive 19% of the total cohort bringing home the full A*, particularly impressive at a time of considerable change and anxiety within school assessment.
Across our subjects, eight reformed A levels were examined for the first time this summer, all emphasising increased stretch and challenge; and we are delighted that Merchiston has once again delivered excellence in this new context, going way beyond the national average across the board.
These glowing results are a real testament to the hard work, drive and talent of our pupils and staff – well done to one and all!
