STUDENTS at Coventry College have been celebrating an excellent set of BTEC results.
There were celebrations as learners received their long-awaited grades on Tuesday, with results based on teacher-assessments.
Many achieved the grades they needed to secure places at a range of universities, or to pursue a chosen career path.
Among those celebrating was Mariam Mohammed who achieved three D*s in a Level 3 Medical Science extended diploma.
Mariam is now going to University of Northampton to study Podiatry after achieving the grades she needed.
Mariam said: “Because of the lockdown it was really hard as science is quite practical.
“However, we were able to adapt to more online working and the teachers set up videos of them demonstrating to help.”
Tia Parker was also thrilled with her grades of three D*s in Forensic Science.
She will now be starting an apprenticeship working with children with Additional Learning Needs at All Saints Primary School in Coventry.
“During the pandemic it was a bit of a struggle.
“One minute you were in college but the next you were back online.
“I really enjoyed the syllabus and the teachers were very dedicated.”
Gemma Knott, vice principal business growth, engagement and partnerships at Coventry College said: “There have been some really outstanding results achieved by students this year.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many changes, but students have shown the ability to adapt to different ways of learning.
“We wish all of our students the very best as they now go on to pursue a range of exciting opportunities.”
