UAE students have achieved another set of outstanding A-Level results this year, despite the enormous pressures they have been subjected to over the last few months. Now, they are all set to progress to prestigious universities around the globe.
Aldar Academies, part of Aldar Education - one of the UAE’s leading private education providers, announced record grades for its 2020 A-level results, with more than 1 in 3 students achieving A* - A across all subjects. The outstanding results are the highest to date for A-level students within Aldar Academies, with 99.3 per cent of students passing all subjects and 85.6 per cent of students achieving a pass level of A* - C. Sahar Cooper, CEO of Aldar Education, said, “It is wonderful to be celebrating our highest ever A- level results today; this is testament to the consistent hard work and tenacity of our A-level students. This success has been made possible thanks to the passion and dedication shown by our education team and the immense support from our families.
“At Aldar Academies, we pride ourselves on providing our students a future-focused education that instills the skills to be resilient and agile to adapt to new challenges. We wish all our students well in their endeavors and look forward to seeing them become our leaders of tomorrow.” Horizon International School, part of Al Najah Education, also celebrated impressive 2020 AS and A Level results. As a thriving and developing Post 16 provider, the school has grown in popularity and success as a result of its personalised pathways, which cater for, and support the specific needs and interests of its students.
The 2020 Post 16 results reflect another year of exceptional performance by Horizon International School’s students in both attainment and progress. Out of the entries for this year, 29% of exam entries were awarded A*-A, and 75% of entries achieved A*-C grades. Horizon International School enjoyed an overall pass rate (A*-E) of 100%. This year, Brighton College Abu Dhabi pupils have not only achieved stellar results, but have also built up immense resilience in adversity, and even more confidence in the use of IT than previous cohorts have needed.
The high marks achieved this year continue to build upon Brighton College’s year-on-year achievements which distinguish the school, yet again, as it heads towards its tenth year in operation in the Capital, and adding to its 150 years of education success with Brighton College UK.
