Results & Destinations

As a non-selective college offering a wide range of subjects to students of differing abilities, MPW Cambridge is justifiably proud of the results and destinations that our students achieve.

Our A level and GCSE exam results are shown in this section. Building on the successes of previous years, our 2016 A Level results show another outstanding year for the college in which:

  • 40% of A level exams were at grades A*/A (up from 39% last year)
  • 18 leavers with at least three grades all at A*/A
  • The most commonly achieved (modal) outcome at A level was also once again A*/A
  • The pass rate across all subjects was once again 99%

We congratulate all the students and staff who contributed to another excellent year in 2016. Our 2016 A level leavers pursued a range of courses: some spent two years studying AS and then A2; many followed our one-year courses where all the AS and A2 units are compressed into just three terms; a significant number joined MPW at the end of Year 12; and a few students chose to follow our intensive retake courses. All of them benefited from the small class sizes, regular examination practice and Personal Tutor system that are some of the key features of MPW.

We honour our highest-achieving students from the prior year at a Certificates and Awards Evening each December. Many of our GCSE students return to MPW to begin A level courses. The overwhelming majority of our A level leavers proceed to university to pursue a variety of subjects including Architecture, Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Veterinary Science. A summary of the university destinations of our 2015 A level leavers can be found in this section.
