On Thursday 18 December 2014 Ex Marling student George Illes was presented with an award by the examination board WJEC at a ceremony in Cardiff for achieving the highest point score of the 7,674 candidates sitting A Level English Literature in England and Wales in 2014. The annual A level Awards celebrates the success of pupils from all over the UK who gained the highest marks of all the candidates taking WJEC qualifications. Last year, WJEC awarded more than 1 million qualifications, including 79,000 A level qualifications.

The winners, their parents and teachers attended the ceremony at WJEC’s office in Cardiff to receive their awards from WJEC’s Chief Executive Gareth Pierce, and special guest Media Wales Education Correspondent Gareth Evans.

Gareth Pierce, WJEC’s Chief Executive, said: “Last year WJEC received over 79,000 A level entries. The results of this group of pupils are extremely impressive and it is a delight to have the opportunity to celebrate their success here today.

“A levels provide a solid basis for which pupils can progress. All our winners have gone on to study at some of the UK’s best Higher Education Institutions as well as overseas. I wish each winner the very best for the future.”

George is currently studying Human, Social and Political Science (HSPS) at Homerton College Cambridge intending to graduate in Politics and International relations.

"George is a highly intelligent young man whose perceptive observations of life and his wider environment made him a unique student. He was an absolute pleasure to teach." Jayne Southwell, Head of English
