Young people at Bracknell and Wokingham College maintained the 100 per cent pass rate set last year.
Eight A*s were achieved at the college across maths, sociology, English and photography, with 39 per cent of students achieving A* to B and 71 per cent achieving A* to C.
Thom Wathen, 19, from Crown Wood, scored A* in sociology, A in human biology and B in chemistry.
He said: “It’s amazing – this is one of the best days of my life. I saw I had got into uni on UCAS this morning, but I didn’t want to let my sister and mum know until I had seen my results.
“I would like to go into drug development and curing diseases.”
Thom will be studying biomedical science at Warwick University.
Abeer Naseer, his former chemistry tutor, said: “We are very pleased – Thom is one of the best students here.
“We are sad because he has to leave now.”
Also being congratulated by beaming teachers was 19-year-old Emma Johnston, from Reading, who achieved an A* in maths, A in biology and B in chemistry, securing her a place at Royal Holloway studying biomedical science.
She said: “I am very pleased”
Head of A-levels and GCSEs Ginette Cox said: “Everyone has fulfilled their potential – I am excited about the next steps for these young people.”
