  • Highest achieving A Level Computing student with the WJEC

    Former Upton Court Grammar School student Rohan Arora, who sat seven A Levels in summer 2013, was recently named the highest achieving A Level Computing student with the WJEC examination board.

    Rohan, who gained 6 A* and 1 A grade at A Level began his illustrious career at the School in September 2006, and progressed onto the University of Oxford to read Economics & Management.

    Gareth Pierce, Chief Executive of the Welsh Examinations board, congratulated Upton Court Grammar School principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada on the success of the student, recognising his outstanding achievement while paying tribute to the skill and dedication of his teachers.

    Rohan scored 380 out of a possible 400 marks in the combined examinations and coursework elements of the computing A Level. He will attend an awards ceremony in December accompanied by the Principal to celebrate this outstanding achievement.

    Principal Mrs Hernandez Estrada said “Rohan is an incredibly driven young man who aims to excel at everything that he does. He embodied our 'Ad Astra' motto and, on this occasion, he has 'reached the stars'. I am delighted to see him recognised for his commitment to his learning and outstanding achievement."
