GEMS Education’s Jumeirah College is celebrating extraordinarily good results from its students – some of the best on record, against a background of worries across UAE schools that students this year would be punished by the British qualifications regulator, Ofqual, which is set on adjusting this year’s grade boundaries downwards to counter baked-in grade inflation caused by the pandemic.
Marc Morris, Principal of Jumeirah College told SchoolsCompared:
“Congratulations to our Year 13 students on achieving an outstanding set of examination results at A level.
We are delighted that this leaves the majority of students in a position to access their first choice of university.
In addition to recognizing the achievements of our students, it is important to pay tribute to their families and teachers who have supported them on their academic journey.
The examination boards have been very clear that this year’s results should be above the last set of public examination results taken in 2019, after two years of centre/teacher assessment. We are very pleased that our results for 2022 show improvement across all three grade categories when compared to 2019 with students achieving:
A* grades 20.9%
A* – A grades 55.4%
A*-B grades 86.3%
Our students have proved to be incredibly resilient through the pandemic and we wish them every success with their future academic and professional careers.
