Applied Science Students Achieve Highest Possible Grades - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Bridgwater & Taunton College Applied Science students are celebrating an excellent set of results this year, with several students achieving exceptionally high grades. This qualification is a viable alternative to A Levels for students who love the sciences and wish to continue to study them beyond GCSE.

Becky Cottey has achieved D*D*D*, the highest grade possible.  A former pupil at Robert Blake Science College, she is now ready to move on to study Criminology and Forensic Studies at Portsmouth University.

Also achieving the maximum D*D*D* is Lauren Gathercole, a former pupil at Bridgwater College Academy who is going on to study Forensic Investigation at Bournemouth University.

Eleanor Waters has achieved D*D*D which allows her to go on to study Zoology at Exeter University.

Keisha Henderson has successfully completed the qualification, achieving D*DD. She is going on to study Forensic Investigation at Bournemouth University.

Of the 45 grades achieved between the 15 students in the class of 2019, an impressive 20 were very high grades of Distinction or Distinction*.


Kirsty Stainsby, Course Leader, said,

I am delighted with this year’s set of results, the students have worked so hard and are going on to do some really exciting science degrees at university. The Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science (Analytical and Forensic Science) allows students to expand their science knowledge and understanding beyond GCSE level, equipping them for higher study and a whole host of science-based careers.


There are still places available to study this exciting qualification this September, find out more here.
