Exam results roll of honour for the academic year 2017-2018.

A level examination results

Ealing Independent College is celebrating another year of strong results and exceptional student achievements, with almost 50% of our students achieving A*-B and 20% achieving A*-A. There are also some tremendous grade enhancement success stories amongst our intensive year students, reinforcing the College’s place amongst the top in the country for improving grades. The consistency of the strong A-level results that our students achieve year on year is a hallmark to the College, and a testament to the passion and dedication of our teaching staff in helping students achieve their true potential.

Principal of Ealing Independent College, Dr Ian Moores, commented: “I have enjoyed talking to many of the students this morning and rejoicing with them in their achievements. It is gratifying to see them moving on to the universities and courses of their choice. The College has had another very successful year.”

A high proportion of our students have again made it to their first choice universities, and we are delighted to share some of their successes below:

Keigo, despite having joined the College slightly late in the academic year, produced a truly astonishing trio of A* grades in Mathematics, Further Maths and Physics. He joined the College as an international student from Japan, and achieved an incredible 97% of UMS marks in both of the Mathematical disciplines. His A* in Physics is also tremendous, given the fact that he picked the subject up only this academic year. Keigo will be moving on to study Computer Science at Imperial College London.


Riyal, who successfully undertook an intensive GCSE with the College, and stayed on for A Levels, performed superbly well. With A grades in English Literature and Biology and a B grade in Chemistry, Riyal will now be going to study Pharmacy at UCL. Riyal was a model student during her time at the College, serving as a popular member of the student council during the last two years.


Alex also performed with distinction, scoring A grades in Computer Science and Mathematics, along with a B grade in Further Maths. Alex’s hard work and dedication throughout his time at the College ensured that he has achieved the results which he deserved. The gifted young man will be studying Computer Science at University of Bristol.


Alessandro, one of our international students from Italy, studied the same subjects as Alex, and also performed superbly well. He attained an A grade in Computer Science to go with B grades in Mathematics and Further Maths. Alessandro will take his quiet and hard-working demeanour on in his studies, going on to read Computer Science at King’s College London.


Gursavek, who was awarded a scholarship at the College for his A Level studies, worked consistently hard this year, realising his great potential by attaining an A grade in Mathematics, alongside B grades in Biology and Chemistry.  Gursavek will be studying Dentistry at Prague University.


Luc, who came to the College at the start of his A Level course, took four A Levels through to the end. Despite the sizable workload, Luc was able to manage his time effectively in order to succeed in all disciplines, attaining an A grade in Biology, two B grades in Mathematics and French, and a C grade in Physics. Having played every minute for the College football team this year, Luc will go on to study Economics at Nottingham University.

Within the Year 13 cohort this year there were two students who decided to change path in their studies, taking on a new set of subjects completely and excelling in the short time they had to master their new areas:


Sulaiman, who had originally come to the College last year with the intention of studying Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry, with a view towards a career in Medicine, decided that he needed to move more towards Humanities and Social Science subjects. Alongside a superb A* grade for Arabic Studies, Sulaiman achieved a C grade in Government and Politics, and an outstanding A grade in History, a subject he took up only this year. A keen debater, Sulaiman will now go to study Politics, Sociology and East European Studies at King’s College London.


Another student who decided to change subjects at the end of Year 12 was Solomon. Moving away from Biology and Chemistry towards a more Mathematical route was a difficult decision, but Solomon thrived this year, working incredibly well to achieve an A* grade in Mathematics, an A in Further Maths and a C grade in Physics. Solomon will now read Mathematics at Loughborough University.

As well as a fantastic performance from our Year 13 students, many students also joined the College to embark on a one-year intensive course with the intention of improving on disappointing performances in their former schools or taking up a brand new subject.

There were some real stand-out success stories this year:

Charlie, hailing from near Manchester, made a brave decision to come to the College for a year in with the goal of improving his grades to gain access to Medicine courses. Having previously attained an A grade in English Literature, he pushed his Biology grade from a B to an A and, taking the subject from a scratch start, without even prior GCSE background knowledge, worked immensely hard to achieve an A in Chemistry. A truly superb achievement. Charlie has been offered a place at Anglia Ruskin University to read Medicine. 


Another student who joined the College for one year on the A Level intensive programme was Jack. Having suffered the disappointing setback of achieving CCD in Mathematics, Physics and Economics respectively, he lifted his profile to AAC, enjoying a 5 grade enhancement. Jack was a popular, industrious and amenable student at the College and he goes with our very best wishes to study Mechatronics at University of Manchester.


Priya came to the College to study intensive A Levels in Computer Science and Business Studies, having already attained a B grade in Economics from a local all-girls school. She lifted her Computer Science grade to a C, and achieved an outstanding A grade in Business Studies, having taken up the A Level in only one year. Priya will now be going to Sheffield University to study Business Management.

Congratulations to all students on their A Level results.

GCSE examination results

This year’s GCSE results have indicated continued strength across the College, with almost 80% of students achieving at least grade 4 and above in the new specifications, or C and above in the IGCSE Sciences and Languages which the College offers. The College is extremely proud of all of the students who have been with us through their two-year GCSE courses. In addition, the value which the College has added to the results of students who enrolled in the College to improve their existing grades from previous schools has been very pleasing this year, with some students enjoying substantial grade enhancement in the subjects which they have retaken, enabling them to move towards A Level courses.

Amongst the Year 11 cohort, there were some wonderful individual performances, detailed below:

Sara, who scored an incredible 3 A*s across the sciences, 2 8 grades in English Language and Literature (the equivalent to A*), alongside a 7 grade in Maths (equivalent to an A grade), an A in History and a B grade in French sitting her exams one year early, improved her GCSE profile further this year whilst embarking on year 12 courses. Sara scored an incredible 9 grade in Art GCSE, befitting of her immense talent. She also scored an impressive 7 grade in Religious Studies.


Vincent performed superbly well across his GCSE subjects, attaining a grade 8 in English Language, to go with A* grades in Biology and Physics. He also achieved grade 7s in English Literature, Mathematics and History, alongside an A grade in Chemistry. Two subjects which Vincent took on intensively in one year, Business Studies and Religious Studies, resulted in B grades. He was able to cope with a high workload this year very well and should be proud of his results.


Sultan produced creditable results having joined the College in year 9, and he has shown that he is a student with undoubted talent. His grade 7 in Religious Studies, along with B grades in Biology and Chemistry, and grade 6s in History and English Literature are well deserved. Grade 5s in English Language, Mathematics and a C in Physics complete a strong GCSE profile, and he should be pleased with his efforts.


As well as a fantastic performance from our Year 11 students, many students embarked on a one-year intensive GCSE course with the intention of improving on disappointing performances in their former schools.

There were some real stand-out success stories this year:

Marc took disappointing grades of 655CCDDE to a far more impressive 7A*A*A*C, with a grade enhancement of 8 across five subjects. His performance in the sciences (A*A*A*) is truly exceptional. He is now in a strong position to move on to A Levels with a renewed sense of confidence.


Zaineb is another student who had huge success in sitting the sciences separately. She came to us from a local state school having underperformed in double science, attaining CD there. This year, she managed to lift her results to A*AB in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, far more in keeping with her ability.


Principal Dr Ian Moores was very pleased with the achievements of the GCSE cohort. He stated that “The GCSE results are fantastic this year. I am particularly delighted to see a very good number of our GCSE retake students attaining top grades that will surely secure their academic futures. I taught many of the GCSE students this year in the last four months, and so I have been able to witness them growing into more confident and mature individuals as well as moving forward academically. It is a great privilege to be so involved in shaping the futures of these impressive young men and women.”
