Second Chance Options result in First-Choice University Places

With even more changes to exams this year, and a student demographic that require more support than previous years due to disrupted education, 80% of Bath Academy students reached their first-choice universities, and Resit students maintained an average two-grade per subject improvement.  


“This year’s exams have seen even more changes and challenges for students including the return to pre-pandemic marking standards in England (in contrast to Northern Ireland and Wales), with many universities not adjusting their offers in line with this. Additionally, post-pandemic we have seen students requiring more support than previous years,” said Principal Tim Naylor. “This isn’t surprising with the disrupted path Year 11s and Year 13s have experienced over the last few years. Despite this, Bath Academy students have performed incredibly well, with some stand-out performances:”

A Level Results 2023:

  • 80% of our students are progressing to their first-choice university

  • 60% going to Russell Group universities

  • 56.1% of grades were A*-B, exceeding the national 53.5%

  • 81.6% of all A-Level entries achieved grades A*- C, exceeding the national 76%

Ed Jordan

Ed Jordan came all the way from Chester to study at Bath Academy to fulfil his dream of becoming a doctor. Having previously achieved A*A*A* in humanities subjects, he studied Biology, Chemistry and French from scratch in one year at Bath Academy, achieving A*A A*. He is now going St. George’s University Medical School in London. 


Åke Wiberg moved to a new curriculum of A-Levels in the UK from Norway which was challenging in itself. Previously advised to drop Maths, he was determined to do better and decided to retake Maths and Psychology at Bath Academy, achieving an overall three-grade improvement to gain a place at Durham to study Accounting. 


Commenting on his experience at the college, Åke said: “My journey this year at Bath Academy has been without a doubt the best decision I have made for myself and my future. I have never felt so prepared and confident going into an exam before and this was all due to the college, and this is definitely a skill I will hold on to for my future. I cannot thank Bath Academy enough for this life changing experience. If you are willing to put the work in with Bath Academy, you will almost definitely achieve your desired results.” (pic)


Bath Academy specialises in A-Level Resit courses for students who do not achieve the A-Level grades they require to progress to the university of their choice. It is also a good option for those students who have had a disrupted education due to moving schools, change of curriculum, or need to study an additional subject. As an academically non-selective college, it provides a nurturing and supportive learning culture where students thrive in the small school environment.
