Another record breaking year for A-level results

Island students have been commended for their hard work after another set of record breaking A-Level results.

Yesterday almost 400 young people from the Island’s five secondary schools marked the end of two years of higher education by picking up their exam results. 

Over 1,200 A-Levels were sat in total in 40 different subjects. 

The overall pass rate actually fell this year to 96.3 per cent however a record 41.4 per cent of entries relieved passes at A* to B grades which was up from last year’s figure of 38.8 per cent.

Paul Craine from the department told us what the lower pass rate means.
