PICTURE GALLERY: Thomas Rotherham College A Level results
THOMAS Rotherham College students secured a 98 per cent this year, with 86 students achieving at least three A grade A Levels or vocational equivalents.
The top achiever was Beth Kynman, with A*s in maths, further maths, physics and chemistry. Beth will study maths and physics at Warwick University.
And she will be joined by twin sister Amy, who will read chemistry following her one A* and three As.
Andrew Deniszczyc and Daniel Langston both achieved three A*s and an A.
Daniel will study maths at Imperial College London and Andrew Computer science at Pembroke College, Cambridge.
Also Cambridge-bound, to study history at Trinity Hall, is Freya Tonnesen, who achieved As in maths and chemistry, with an A* in history.
Freya, of Thorncliffe View, Chapeltown, said: “It feels really good — I can’t quite believe I’m going to Cambridge.
“I’m not sure what I want to do after university yet — just carry on doing what I enjoy and see where it leads.”
Principal Dr Richard Williams described the results as “most pleasing” and offered his “hearty congratulations” to students.
Delighted Thomas Rotherham Colleges student Andrew Deniszczyc declared himself shocked at securing three A*s and an A.
Andrew (18), from Wincanton Close in Mexborough, achieved the top grade in mathematics, further mathematics and chemistry and an A in physics.
He is now set to study Computer Science at Cambridge University.
He said: “I am pretty shocked. I am delighted to have got these results.
“Because I had got an offer for Cambridge I kind of accepted that I would not get it.
“It’s a big surprise.”
Andrew said he was also happy that his friends have achieved the grades they need which will take them to universities across the country.
Andrew said: “A-Levels were a lot of work. I had to put a lot of work in for them. I found it quite hard.”
Fellow TRC student Daniel Bartholomew is heading to Warwick University to study mathematics after achieving A* grades in mathematics and further mathematics and an A in Chemistry.
Daniel (18), of Osbert Road in Rotherham, said: “I am very pleased.”
But he admitted that he didn’t find A-Levels as difficult as expected. He said: “I didn’t try excessively hard.”
Daniel said he was looking forward to heading off to Warwick later this year, adding: “It’s a very nice university.”
