Comments and emails from Year 13 students on receiving their results
“When I found out that I had got into The University of Exeter I was shocked and overjoyed at the same time! Having convinced myself that I was going to my insurance choice I never expected to achieve such an amazing goal that I had set for myself! If someone had said to me a few years ago that I would be going to a top 10 university in the UK I would have laughed at how silly it would all sound! Having to really put in the hard work to achieve my grades the outcome has left me prouder of myself then I have ever been before and proves that all my hard work and determination has paid off. I can never imagine that this excitement will wear off and I can't wait for this new chapter of my life. I will always be grateful to the Cardinal Wiseman staff and community who have helped and pushed me to my full potential which has led me to where I am today.”
“I'm so pleased I got the results I needed to study Medicine at Birmingham University. I'm really excited to start training to become a doctor in a matter of weeks. I would recommend carrying on with 4 A Levels to anyone hoping to enter a similarly competitive field. Thank you to Lorraine and the rest of the 6th form team that have helped me over the last two years!”
“I decided to attend Cardinal Wiseman two years ago. Back then I saw how much the Wiseman community had helped its external students improve and achieve the best they could. This is what attracted me to the school. Two years later, the 6th form team are even better and have helped me to achieve the best A Level results I could have hoped for. Thanks to my teachers and the 6th form team, not only have I managed to secure a place in one of the best universities but I have also grown as a person. Thank you.”
Dear Ms Somrah,
I just wanted to thank you for the time you and the Sixth Form Team spent trying to prepare myself and the rest of year 13 for our exams and University. Thanks to your motivational assemblies and mock interviews, I opened my results with a huge smile on my face and relief that all my hard work has paid off and of course, your favourite quote being recalled in my head 'I could not have done any more'.
I hope that the whole Sixth Form Team have an amazing Summer and if needs be, I would love to speak to some students trying to get into medicine and dentistry, as it is quite a long and tough application process.
Thank you once again for helping me fulfil my dream of getting into a dental school!
“My final grades were AAB and although initially I was a bit disappointed as I had been aiming for 3As, having been accepted into Warwick University to study Law with a year abroad, I felt proud and satisfied with the results of my hard work. I will take on everything I have learnt from all my subjects and years in Wiseman and hopefully develop them further in the forthcoming new atmosphere.
I want to thank you, Mr Bird, Lorraine, Mrs Durkin and all my teachers who have helped me through my A Levels and for the extra time and effort given when needed.
Good luck and I'll definitely miss Wiseman!”
