Clifton College recorded the second highest number of 100% marks in the Religious Studies short course GCSE this year, out of a total of 1579 centres who sat the paper.
With 21 students who obtained maximum marks in this one-year GCSE course, the College is one of only 14 test centres to get more than 10 individual results of this kind.
Religious Studies has witnessed a rise in popularity in recent years and looks at societal issues such as human rights, environmental and medical ethics, peace and conflict, as well as crime and punishment. Pupils examine the topics and look at different religious approaches to these issues.
Remarking on the GCSE results achieved by the pupils, Head of Religious Studies Julia Greenbury said: “The department is thrilled for these pupils. All teachers in the department had students who reached this perfect score and it was lovely to see them achieving so highly across the various classes. I would like to congratulate the pupils on this excellent achievement and the department for all the hard work that went on.”
