Students in Upper Sixth in Wallace are celebrating very pleasing A Level and AS results this year. At A Level 90% of the grades were at A*, A , B and C. Importantly at this stage a very high number of students have been successful in meeting the requirements of their first choice university places. This year a particularly high number of students have been successful in the very competitive fields of Medicine and Veterinary Science.
