With their exceptional performance on the Panhellenic exams once again this year, Pierce C Lyceum graduates of 2018 confirmed their methodicalness, hard work and dedication to their goals while also demonstrating their teachers’ systematic and thorough daily preparation in class. With their admission into tertiary education and indeed into top schools, Pierce graduates have taken their first important step towards the achievement of their goals.
Of the 107 graduates of 2018 who completed the Computer Application Form, 105 (or 98.1%) succeeded in being admitted to institutions of higher education. Of those, 95 (90.5%) have been admitted to Universities, while the other 10 have gained entrance to TEI. Six out of 10 will be attending schools in Athens and Piraeus, which is an important factor at a time when the cost of studying in another city is a problem for many families.
A percentage of 47% of those admitted will be attending schools in high demand. To be specific:
- 8 graduates have been admitted to Law schools (5 in Athens and 3 at Universities outside Athens)
- 7 graduates have been admitted to Medical schools (2 at the Medical School of Athens, 2 at Medical Schools outside Athens and another 3 at Dental and Pharmaceutical Schools)
- 17 graduates have been admitted to Polytechnic schools (4 at the NTUA, of whom 3 will be studying at the School of Electrical Engineering and the rest at Polytechnic Schools outside Athens) and
- 17 Pierce graduates will be studying at top Economics departments
Excellent grades, candidates with over 18,000 points, four times the Panhellenic percentage!
16.3% of this year’s candidates achieved over 18,000 points, a percentage that is four times the corresponding Panhellenic average while, at the same time, 48% of the candidates achieved over 15,000 points (compared to the Panhellenic average of 24%).
In Modern Greek, our students achieved high grades (18 – 20) with a percentage four times the Panhellenic average (3.88% as compared to 0.85%) in a subject that was quite difficult to comprehend and therefore resulted in low grades on the summary.
In Ancient Greek (subject of increased weight for the Humanities), our students achieved high grades with a percentage five times the Panhellenic average (21.88% as compared to 4.67%) while, at the same time, 40% of Pierce students achieved scores over 15 (as compared to the Panhellenic average of 24%).
