Our overall A-level pass rate is excellent, with 87% of learners achieving A* to C grades and 41% of our learners achieving the coveted A* and A grades in 2022.
At the Pwllheli campus, learners following STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects particularly excelled: 77.8 % achieved an A* or A grade for Chemistry and 69.2% gained the same grades for Biology, both figures far exceeding the national comparator.
Not to be outdone, over at the college’s Dolgellau campus, 83.3% of learners studying Maths achieved an A* or A grade. These results show outstanding academic success and personal achievement and will enable our learners to take their next step to university, apprenticeships or employment.
Ffion Wood from Abersoch gained straight A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and is now going on to study Medicine at Oxford University, whilst Kit Moore-Lambe from Pontllyfni, gained straight A*s in Biology, English Language, English Literature, Geography and History!
Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor’s two sixth form centres - the Meirionydd Sixth & Dwyfor Sixth - are the perfect next-step if you are hoping to progress on to university or employment after studying your A-levels. They are both equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and real-life working environments.
Over in the college’s Science departments, new laboratories have been unveiled at the Dolgellau and Pwllheli campuses as part of a £1.9m project to improve Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) facilities for college students. A further laboratory will also be created on the Marian campus in Dolgellau to accommodate robotics and electrical engineering facilities.
Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor offers a choice of more than 20 A-level subjects, delivered by highly-qualified and experienced tutors. The college is also involved in the Welsh Government's Seren Network initiative, which is designed to support high achievers to reach their full academic potential and gain access to leading universities. College is a great opportunity to make new friends, try something new, and gain a little independence, and you can rest assured that you will be fully supported throughout your time with us.
