School celebrates GCSE results success
Students and staff at Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham are celebrating a second year of exceptional GCSE results.
The cancellation of GCSE exams due to the Covid-19 pandemic meant that pupils were awarded grades based on their overall progress in their courses. Yet despite the challenges surrounding this year’s results day, many pupils at the school were overjoyed with their results.
There are many examples of exceptional achievement.
Firstly, the hard work, talent and dedication of Salmaan Yehia resulted in the achievement of the highest possible grades in all eleven of his subjects. He achieved nine grade 9s and two Distinction*s. Salmaan now hopes to complete A-levels in Maths and the Sciences which will allow him to study Medicine and fulfil his ultimate ambition of becoming a doctor. He said
“Hardwork is simply the foundation for a column of good grades. Respect, gratitude and passion for excellence are elements needed to lift the foundation towards perfection.”
Another success story comes from the school’s Deputy Head Boy, Muhammad Ibrahim, who also wishes to pursue a career in medicine. The bright pupil achieved the top grade of 9 in nine of his subjects as well as one grade 8 and two Distinction*s. He plans to study A-level Maths, Chemistry and Biology at King Edward VI Camp Hill sixth form. Muhammad reflected:
“With all the uncertainty in the last few weeks over the legitimacy of our grades, morale has been low, but our hopes were always high. With ambitions to protect and aspirations to strive for, the school did not disappoint by providing us grades that were truly reflective of our potential. I cannot thank the teachers enough for their continuous support. Without every single one of them guiding me every step of the way, I would not be the man I am today.”
For Ibrahim Khalil, his excellent results bring him one step closer to being the first from his family to go to university. His excellent grades included an exceptional eight grade 9s in his GCSEs. Ibrahim, who regularly spent his time supporting other students throughout Year 11, hopes to take A-levels in Maths, Physics and Computing to eventually fulfil his dream of working in Aerospace Engineering. He said
“I could not be happier. My grades are the result of the hard work of my teachers both during school and during interventions. Heads of Year and SLT have been so supportive throughout.”
Sayem Ahmed achieved excellent results, including two grade 8s, eight grade 7s and a Distinction*. Sayem, who is extremely pleased with his results, has applied to study at King Edward VI Aston Sixth Form and aims to go on to study Civil Engineering at a Russell Group University. Sayem said
“I am really humbled that my friends and I have done so well. I am looking forward to the next stage of my education.”
Asiyah Ravat, Principal at Eden Boys’ School, Birmingham, praised all the pupils at the school for their hard work and achievements:
“Much has been made this year of algorithms and teacher predictions. However, at its core, this is about the future of our young people and helping each and every one of them to realise their value and achieve their dreams. We are delighted to be able to help them with this today.”
