Considered the top qualification by British universities, passing the A-Levels is a great accomplishment for secondary school students. Year after year, we watch our students succeed in this pursuit and it’s our great honor to announce that this year’s A-Level results from both Oxford and Torbay are the best in EF Academy’s history.

At Oxford, we are very proud to announce a 97% pass rate, with 29% of our students receiving A*-A grades. At Torbay, there was a 95% pass rate for students, with 31% of our students receiving A*-A grades. Almost 1/3 of all our A-Level students achieved the very highest grades which will put them in line to attend some of the very best universities in the world.

All of the students have had the opportunity to explore their potential and achieve great personal success throughout the course of the program. Our carefully-designed “university pathways” approach has led to great placements for fiercely competitive courses such as Medicine, Law, Economics, and Engineering.
