Gower College Swansea's student photographer Rachel Mitchell snapped up an A grade in photography, a C grade in business studies and an E grade in information, communication and technology. The 18-year-old from Cwmbwrla is now looking to study business and finance at university with a view to setting up her own business.
She said: "I like capturing the world in a different essence and finding ways of making an ordinary image interesting.
"I also like taking pictures of people because you can explore different emotions from different settings."
Joshua Coles from Ystradgynlais received his BTEC results at Gower College Swansea yesterday.
The 18-year-old said: "I am starting an apprenticeship with my father and hopefully in the next few years will start working abroad.
"My father is an instrument technician working on maintenance and re-fitting in factories and power stations."
Gower College Swansea Principal Nick Bennett said: "Once again our students have worked exceptionally hard to produce A Level results which will set them in good stead for university and employment.
"I'm particularly pleased that, in pass rates at the higher grades of A* to B, Gower College Swansea is ahead of the Welsh and UK figures.
"My congratulations and best wishes go to them all."
