BARNSLEY College is celebrating its students' A-Levels after recording a 100 per cent pass rate in 14 subjects.

Students of English language and literature, French, maths and classical civilisation all passed with flying colours.

The overall pass rate of 97 per cent marks another excellent set of results for the college, which also reported improvements in 16 subjects including chemistry, physics, psychology and history.

Outstanding individual successes include 21-year-old Silvia Kablanova, who moved to Barnsley from Bulgaria just two years ago.

She achieved A*s in biology and maths and an A in chemistry alongside studying English. She is now going on to study medicine at the University of Sheffield.

Silvia, of Worsbrough Dale, said: "I was nervous before I picked up my results but I'm so happy to have achieved two A*s and an A.

"I’ve loved my time at Barnsley College. My tutors were very supportive and I enjoyed all my subjects."

Prinicipal Gerard Garvey added: "We're very proud of our students and we're very pleased to see increased success in so many of our subjects.

"These results are testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff. Many of our students are now progressing on to some of the country's top universities."
