JUNE 2022 A-LEVELS VOLUME 8 The AS/A Level examination has finally come and gone. We thank all the parents and guardians for their support during the examination. As we expect the results by August 2022, we are hopeful that the results of our students will be favourable. Progression to University We are pleased to announce that all our graduating A-level students have gained provisional admission to universities in the UK, Canada and UAE.
UFP With the examinations over, the next thing in line is to progress to university. The past academic year has been nothing short of rigorous as students have gone through mind-building and life-strengthening drills. The university community is not friendly with mediocrity; this makes the training the students have received so far very useful for our students. With carefully selected subjects tailored to their proposed course of study, as well as research projects and science practicals, and the right amount of non-academic activities, progression to university comes with less anxiety and surprises. At The Regent College, we prepare our University Foundation students to excel in some of the best universities in the world, such as the University of Essex, University of Kent, University of Leeds, University of Portsmouth, Aston University, Birmingham, University of Sussex, The University of Edinburgh, University of Bristol, and many more. One of our greatest assets has been the testimonies of our students as they continue to make us proud all around the world.
