Congratulations to everyone who was successful in their A-Level exams
Congratulations to all those who achieved the results they hoped for in their A-Levels when they were announced yesterday.
Commiserations to those who did not but don't give up: there may be good options for you going forward available through clearing or another route.
Yesterday, young people across England received their exam results, with 79 per cent of 18-year-old pupils in the UK gaining a place at their first choice university, ensuring that everyone has access to a wide range of options for the future, helping us grow the economy.
- Of course, the pandemic had a serious impact on students and that is why the government invested £5 billion in education to help pupils recover from this. Results yesterday showed a return to pre-pandemic levels in an important step in getting back to normal.
- Overall, 79 per cent of 18-year-old pupils in the UK gained a place at their first choice university. 16,530 students who received free school meals have also gained a place at university which is a 60 per cent increase from 2019. 90.5 per cent of T Level students also achieved a pass or above.
- The government will continue to support students in the return to normal and ensure that every student has access to a wide range of options for the future which will help us grow the economy.
