Brighton College Al Ain is celebrating another year of outstanding A-Level results today which has resulted in the College’s pupils securing offers at leading universities around the world and 70% going on to study at Russell Group institutions in the United Kingdom, promising a bright future ahead for the latest graduates.
An impressive 10% of all examinations sat by pupils this year have resulted in the highest grade A* which is an impressive improvement on the results obtained in 2019, the last time pupils sat examinations in person. Similarly impressive is the achievement of four in every ten of this year’s cohort who have been awarded A* to A examination grades and over six in every ten pupils have achieved A* to B grades.
Consistently included in the UAE’s best performing schools list, Brighton College Al Ain and its exceptional teachers have gone above and beyond to support its pupils through the uncertain and challenging times that pupils have experienced whilst studying and preparing for their A Level examinations over the past two years. This support, along with the hard work, determination, and resilience of Brighton College Al Ain pupils has seen young women excel in mathematics for the second year in a row with 100% achieving A* to B grades in the challenging subject of Further Mathematics.
Nine in ten of this year’s cohort who applied to universities in the UK have received at least one offer to study at a Russell Group university and at a challenging time for Medicine admissions, one Brighton College Al Ain pupil has secured offers from three out of four of their UCAS choices which includes an offer from Queen Mary University of London.

Head Master of Brighton College Al Ain, Scott Carnochan said: “In a year which has seen our pupils return to formal examinations after two years of centre assessed grades, I am hugely impressed with the outstanding results that our pupils have once again achieved. When you realise that these pupils have not had the opportunity to sit their GCSE examinations, and therefore have not faced public examinations, it makes their achievements even more impressive. Today we not only celebrate our top achievers, but we also celebrate many other A-Level success stories which we are equally thrilled with. Given the way this cohort has so conscientiously applied themselves to their studies, it is unsurprising, yet enormously impressive all the same, that they have secured such a high number of places to study at leading universities around the world.
“I am enormously proud of everything our pupils and teachers have achieved and I congratulate them on these impressive results which are testament to the outstanding teaching and care provided by our school community.”
