If you are unsure about anything relating to your exams and particularly if you think you have been incorrectly entered please talk to Mrs Barnes, Exams Officer, as soon as possible for help and advice.

The main thing to remember regarding exam matters, is not to keep any worries bottled up but ideally contact Mrs Barnes as soon as possible, so that the situation can be assessed and appropriate support can be offered within the bounds of the exam regulations.

All exams information such as times and venues of the exams and seating plans will be posted on the Exam Noticeboard and House noticeboards in good time for students to be able to check where they should be and which seat they should sit in. Students with Access Arrangements should go to the SEN room for their seating arrangements.

The Exams Office is situated next to the lift in the main school building.

EXAM RESULTS 2017

A level and Level 3 Vocational courses

We are pleased to report our A level results at Bungay High Sixth Form. The percentage of A levels graded at A* to C was 64% with a third of all entries graded at A*-B. The overall pass rate for our A levels is 98%. Impressively, the pass rate for our Level 3 vocational and technical courses is 100% with most of the grades awarded at the very highest levels.

Points per entry at A level generally have improved over time since 2013 and the performance of L3 Vocational subjects is rated as a Distinction* (45). We have an inclusive entry policy where students can study a wide range of 'A' Levels and/or vocational qualifications at Level 3.  ALPS indicators show that our top performing subjects at A level were: Maths (3), Further Maths (3), and Physics (3). We are delighted to announce that our Physics results have proved consistently strong over the last 4 years resulting in us being the 3rd highest performing Physics Department out of 170 schools nationally. Additionally our Vocational Sports results make us one the highest performing faculties for boys results.

GCSE Results

We are extremely proud of the progress which our students make in the five years that they are with us. There has been a significant improvement in the progress that students are making in English and Maths alongside their other subjects. We are pleased that the hard work of students has been recognised through improved individual and collective whole school results. Overall, 67% of our students achieved 5A*-C, a 7% increase on last year, with 57% achieving 9 - 4 in English and Maths.

NB this is the last year we will compare 5 A* - C since this is no longer a key measure
