Fri, 18 Aug 2017

The number of students from the Island securing the top grades in this year's A levels has increased.

46.1% of pupils got A* to B grades - an increase of 4% on last year, while almost 8% achieved A*, which is the highest level since the grade was brought in in 2010.

The overall pass rate was 97.6%, which the Department of Education and Children says is broadly in line with previous years.

Several individual pupils secured four grade A* and A passes on the Island, including one who achieved four A*s.

A total of 376 Year 13 pupils from the Department's five secondary school entered over 1100 A levels in nearly 50 subjects this year.
