It was a jubilant day for pupils at Robert Gordon’s College upon opening their exam results.
A record number of S5 pupils, more than 33%, managed to achieve straight As in all their Higher exams.
And a record 85% of S5 pupils managed A or B passes.
Among those pupils was Hamish Campbell, who recently returned from an international underwater robotics competition in Houston.
He said: “I am glad all the hard work has paid off. I am looking forward to working at a defence engineering company in
Edinburgh before studying electrical and electronic engineering at Imperial College, London.”
And S6 pupil Aysha Iqbal, 18, added: “It is great to end six years of hard work on a high. This really is the icing on the cake to end my school career before I start my next adventure studying medicine at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge
Among S4 pupils, 36% achieved eight straight A passes at National 5, with 74% passes at that grade in total.
Simon Mills, head of college, said: “The pupils from S4 to S6 have shown once again that hard work, dedication and close partnerships with their teachers and pastoral support network produces examination results to be truly proud of.
“Our focus on high standards and personal attention to each pupil is the foundation for success. We are delighted for all our pupils and very excited to watch their future development.”
