Worcestershire A level students celebrate pass rate increase
4:49pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in Local
THE percentage of students passing their A levels has increased in Worcestershire.
This morning, anxious students from across the county - including Wyre Forest - received their AS and A level results.
Worcestershire County Council said early indications showed the number of successful students had surpassed previous years with their performance.
The authority said 97.8 per cent of students had achieved two or more A* to E grades, indicating an improvement on 2012’s figures of 93.8 per cent.
The percentage of students achieving three or more A* to E grades has also risen to 87.6 per cent from 92.5 per cent last year.
Conservative councillor Liz Eyre, cabinet member for children and families, said: “Worcestershire A level students have yet again shown they can make the grade with a superb performance in their A level results.
“This year’s results are a well-deserved reflection of the determination and hard work of the students, the skills of their teachers and support of their families.
“For anyone who hasn’t got the results they were hoping for, there are plenty of opportunities available and the school’s teachers or careers advisers should be ready to offer support and advice.”
