Achievement and Results
A Level Results 2016
The first sixth form students to complete their A-levels and BTECs at UTC Cambridge collected their results this summer and the college was delighted with their achievements. UTCC was established just two years ago and students follow an A-level pathway or choose a specialist BTEC with a focus on science, reflecting UTCC’s specialisms in science and technology.
81% of the first students to complete their A-levels at UTCC achieved their 3 A-levels target, against a national average of 77% (2015). More importantly the A-levels passed at UTCC are all in “facilitating subjects” those recognised by top UK universities. In addition an outstanding 95% of UTC Cambridge students on the BTEC Level 3 Course achieved their diploma or extended diploma in Applied Science, way above the national average of 66% (2015).
We celebrated a new milestone as our inaugural GCSE students collected their GCSE results, with many individual success. The students are the first to complete GCSEs since the UTC opened two years ago. In the face of ever- higher standards the students have performed well and as expected, have excelled in the sciences. “98% of our students took triple Science at GCSE with 70% achieving A*- C, against a national figure of 19%(2015)”.
61 per cent achieved A* to C grades in English and Maths (National average 59% 2016). These results will enable students to take up sixth form places with confidence continuing their education at UTCC or moving on to a less specialist further education environment. Their good grades combined with their extensive work experience gained through our nine week Challenge projects is a great springboard for future success.
At UTCC our students are able to study for professional qualifications as well as their academic subjects and we have been delighted with our results to date. Our graduates of 2016 took their Duke of York Award whilst studying ith us, with 61% achieving Gold and 29% achieving Silver.
The style of learning at UTCs is already proving highly successful with 100% of leavers going on to higher education or directly into employment. Around 75% go on to university.

"I studied Physics, Geography and Maths at UTCC and now am going on to do exactly what I wanted, taking Mechanical Engineering at Sussex University. I was determined to succeed and UTCC gave me the opportunity."

“The Industrial Cadets scheme recognises a number of qualities that will aid students in future life. Their participation and hard work put into the presentations are just a couple of these qualities that allow us to see what they are capable of.”
