Brighton Journalist Works students April 2012

Brighton Journalist Works April 2012 student intake have achieved gold standard success in their NCTJ exams.

As Olympic fever hits new heights with team GB bringing home a stack of medals, Brighton Journalist Works (BJW) students have also struck gold as the latest exam results come in.

Forget about Usain Bolt, for NCTJ students the big sprint is the 100wpm shorthand and 11 of the 12 students who started their course in April 2012 achieved the gold standard speed within 14 weeks.

Students achieved a clean sweep in their Essential Media Law exam with each of the 12 attaining the gold standard pass mark.

There was an equally strong showing in the reporting exam as every student passed, with ten taking gold in this challenging test.

Marathon study for the Crime Reporting and Essential Public Affairs exams also paid off as 11 of the 12 students took home gold, putting BJW at the top end of the medal table for this year’s NCTJ results.

Still to come are the Production Journalism, Business of Magazines and Portfolio results, but with a long tradition of success in these fields, BJW expects another gold run.

The January 2012 intake swept the board earlier this year with a 100 per cent gold standard in production and magazines with 14 of the 16 students achieving top grades for their portfolios.

Back in September 2011, there were top marks all round in Business of Magazines, with 20 of the 25 students taking gold for production and 18 of the 25 hitting the highest marks for their portfolio.

Just like Team GB athletes taking home gold, great results in the NCTJ exams is all about hard work and dedication, as well as great coaching.
