Chinese trio eligible for University after passing International English Language assessment

A group of overseas pupils at Rydal Penrhos are celebrating after earning the right to continue their education in the UK.

The trio are now eligible for University after exceeding requirements in their International English Language Testing System assessment, which they sat recently.

The (IELTS) assesses and measures the language proficiency needed for an academic, higher education environment where English is used as the language of communication.

Test takers receive scores on a band scale from 1-9, with the majority of universities requiring an overall band score of 6.5 to satisfy university entrance requirements. 

Upper Sixth pupils Jacob Lau and Alvin Chan, both Chinese boarding pupils at Rydal Penrhos, passed the test with flying colours and both achieve a seven grade.

They were joined by Lower Sixth Form member Geoffrey Fu, who also received eligibility after gaining a 7.5 for his efforts.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This is fantastic news and many congratulations go to Jacob, Alvin and Geoffrey on their assessment success.

“They have all worked tremendously hard to secure their further education futures in the UK, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is thrilled for them.”
