Westminster Kingsway College Results Day 2012
16 August 2012
Hundreds of Westminster Kingsway College learners received their A-Level and BTEC results today. Many students from the College, who studied A-Levels or vocational courses, including BTECs, have successfully completed two-year courses and will be progressing to top-rated universities across the country.
The College provided Advice Stations throughout the King’s Cross Centre, where an expert team of Learner Consultants and Careers Advisors were available to guide learners through the Clearing process if needed and help them take the next step.
Kim Caplin, Vice Principal 14-19 Pathways at Westminster Kingsway College, said: “Learners at the College have achieved some excellent results and secured places at really good universities. They are now ready to move on to the next exciting phase in their lives knowing that they have the skills and qualifications they need to get ahead. On behalf of the whole Centre here at Westminster Kingsway College, we wish them all the best in the future.”
The College has seen good results for the first year AS Level results and the Extended Projects, which provide students with synoptic knowledge and research skills, which can help with their studies at university.
A-Level Economics, Politics and Sociology
NUS Black Student Committee Further Education Representative, Yusuf Molade, is celebrating his triple As in Politics, Economics and Sociology. Yusuf has been accepted to the University of Manchester where he will study BA Politics and Economics. Yusuf said: “My results are the perfect end to my time at College. I want to work in politics. I want to have a positive impact on other people’s lives, especially in the areas of education and young people. I don’t think our voice is being heard in the right channels and I wish more young people got involved in politics to help change that.
Yusuf was supported by Westminster Kingsway College to work with NUS and to encourage Black, Asian and Arab student role models in Further Education Colleges, to challenge institutional racism in Colleges outside of London. He also works to reinstate Educational Maintenance Allowance. Yusuf said: “My role as an NUS Representative has enabled me to respond to issues that I care about. I am glad that I studied in a College that has staff who listen to student issues. When I speak to students from other colleges it is clear that Westminster Kingsway College is so much better at that.”
A-Level Chemistry, Biology, Philosophy and Physics
Yamina Hamadache achieved the highest UCAS points score at Westminster Kingsway College, celebrating triple As and a C grade in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Philosophy. Yamina said: “I can’t wait to go to University College London to study for a Degree in Chemistry. It is what I have always wanted to do. Westminster Kingsway College has really helped me in my achievements, I am really grateful to all my tutors for giving me the support I needed. They have not only helped me to develop my career but also to develop as a person. I will really miss the College’s King’s Cross Centre, which was fantastic. I could travel in easily from my home in High Wycombe but, trust me, the commute is worth it.”
BTEC Level 3 National Health and Social Care
Camden student, Fiona John, received a double Distinction and a Merit for her BTEC Level 3 Health and Social Care, which have earned her a place at London Metropolitan University where she will study Social Work. Fiona currently works as a Health Visitor Support Worker for the NHS in Camden and will continue working whilst studying at University. Fiona said: “I am so happy and relieved to have got such fantastic results. This is the best news I could have hoped for. I have loved being a Westminster Kingsway College student. I was happy studying a course I loved and my tutors were so helpful and supportive. That gives us the confidence to aim for the best and that is exactly what I did.”
