Topics covered in the exam were; Animal Health and Wellbeing, Feeding and Watering Animals, Safe Working with and Around Animals and Work Related Experience in the Land-based Sector.
Jodie Pascoe, 16, from Helston, Georgie Frost, 18, from Falmouth, and Hannah Torry, 16, from Camborne, are three of the students who were awarded a distinction.
