New Sixth Form student Molly Hayward achieved some of the highest GCSE results in Lord Lawson history with 10 A* and 1 A grade. Molly in her own words gives us her guide to exam success…
During my GCSE exams, I can say that I had 12 hours of sleep every night, I ate only nutritious food and put in 6 hours of mind-numbing revision every night after school. I can say with absolute certainty that I followed my revision timetable to the letter and spent hour after hour revisiting and rehearsing everything that I had learned over the course of 2 years. I could say that I was always entirely focused on achieving the best results that I could, however, I can also say that everything I have claimed so far would be a lie.
We are really pleased with our GCSE results at Lord Lawson – they represent our best ever results with 79% of students attaining A*-C in English, 73% A*-C in Maths, 69% of students attaining A*-C grades in both English and Maths, and 66% of students attaining 5 GCSEs at A*-C including English and Maths.
In addition 29 students have attained ALL or nearly all A*/A grades. We couldn’t be more proud of our students who have worked so hard throughout the year as have their teachers.
Congratulations to all.
