the program area manager for A-levels at Boston College, said: "We're very happy, it's a definite improvement on last year and it's a jump up from the previous couple of years.

"Going forward, we just have to consolidate this and continue doing what we're doing to help people get onto their first choice of programs at university.

"Our job is to broaden their horizons and encourage them to go further in life. I've been here for three years and this is the first time we've seen a pass rate like this so I'm very proud."

Boston College student, Mamun Choudhury achieved an A* in economics and has now been accepted onto the accounting and finance program at Leicester's De Montfort University.

"The students have all worked very hard and to get the results that they needed."
