2012 Results Analysis
This year, our 108 A level candidates performed extremely well, in line with the pattern of very good grades which has been established at Mill Hill. Our average pass rates over the last three years are 45% A*/A, 73% A*-B and 92% A*-C. The mean UCAS points score over the same period has been 348 per candidate, which equates approximately to ABB at A level plus an additional C at AS level.
In 2012, 25 pupils achieved A level grades of AAA or better. The highest performing candidate attained five A* grades, while five scored 3 A* and 1 A each. One in nine pupils achieved two or more A* grades. In addition to the broad range of subjects we offer, a number of pupils completed an Extended Project Qualification, with 75% receiving the top grade of A*.
The School saw its largest group of pupils for 20 years take up places at Oxford and Cambridge, in Mathematics, Chemistry, Natural Sciences, Philosophy and Computing, Fine Art and Music. One pupil was also successful in gaining a Choral Scholarship to his Cambridge college. Almost all our 2012 leavers secured their university places, either for 2012 or after a Gap Year in 2013, with a high proportion going on to are elite Russell Group and top twenty universities.
The AS level performances represent a School record, with 60.7% of exams being graded A or B. Almost a quarter of the cohort achieved three A grades or better. Two pupils attained five A grades, and one attained four A grades and one B grade.
The GCSE results, from a cohort of 123 candidates, form another School record, with the A*/A pass rate rising to 60.5%. This is all the more impressive as it came in the year that saw the first national decline in GCSE grades since the launch of the qualification in the late 1980s. One third of the Mill Hill cohort achieved eight A*/A grades or better, with over one in ten pupils receiving six or more A* grades.
