“I am absolutely delighted that our students have achieved 36 firsts, more than the number in the last two years put together,” noted Dame Lynne Brindley, Pembroke’s Master. “This is the highest number of firsts ever for Pembroke, and our Norrington ‘score’ of 72.45 is the highest the college has ever achieved.”

The Norrington Table, an unofficial academic ranking of Oxford colleges, is calculated using a points system for the degrees undergraduate students are awarded in any given academic year.

The Table is calculated by awarding 5 points for a student who receives a 1st, 3 points for a 2:1, 2 for a 2:2 and 1 for a 3rd.
