Tanglin's Exceptional 2021 A Level Results

Tanglin's Exceptional 2021 A Level Results

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 for their outstanding A Level results this year. We are immensely proud of our students, who have risen to the challenges of another difficult year and achieved 100% pass rate.

An exceptional 42% of all grades were an A*, more than double the average in England, where 19.1% of all grades were an A*. At Tanglin, 70% of all grades were an A* or A, compared to 44.8% in England.

Other achievements include:

  • 86% of all grades were in the A* to B range
  • 97% of all grades were in the A* to C range
  • 47% of students taking the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) achieved an A*
  • 74% of EPQ grades were A* or A

Allan Forbes, Head of Senior School at Tanglin Trust School said: "Following our impressive IB results released at the start of the summer, I am absolutely delighted with our A level outcomes. It is well documented in the media that UK-based exam boards did not set formal exams this summer and hence, many of these results have been generated by the subject teachers using prior coursework, classwork, mock exams and other forms of assessment. Other A level subjects at Tanglin follow the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) Board which did set exams for international schools, like Tanglin, who were able to accommodate them. As with the IB Diploma, all CIE exams were taken at Tanglin in May and June. I am not going to distinguish between the TAGs and the CIE grades as I firmly believe the students have achieved what they worked for and deserved whichever route was defined for their particular subject choices."

We are very proud of our students' exceptional performance, and we wish the Class of 2021 every success as they embark on their next season of life. Special thanks to our teachers and support staff for their individual care and attention to our students. Last but not least, we want to thank Tanglin's parents, who have shown great patience and resilience during these challenging times.
