Gower College Swansea is celebrating an overall 98% pass rate at A Level - which is above the Welsh national average -with 1548 separate exam entries.
Of these passes, 81% were at the higher grades of A*-C and 57% were at grades A*-B, both increases on the results of 2014.
The overall pass rate at AS level was 90%, with 66% of those passes being grades A-C and 42% being grades A or B, again increasing on 2014’s results.

The college's overall pass rates for 2015 are above the Welsh average, especially at the higher A*-C grades.
“Congratulations once again to our students who have worked exceptionally hard to produce A Level results which will set them in good stead for Higher Education and employment,” says Vice Principal Kay Morgan. “The fact that we have exceeded last year’s results in both A and AS Level is a testament to their talent and dedication.
I’m especially pleased that 209 students, across AS and A Level, achieved straight A* and A grades in all their subjects.”
“I would also like to acknowledge our staff, who have supported these students throughout the year and whose contribution to today’s success stories is hugely significant.”
