Record success for A-level students

LONDON, Aug 17: British A-level results announced on Thursday showed a record number of top grades as the national pass rate rose for the 25th year in a row.

The proportion of papers awarded A grades reached one in four for the first time. Figures from the exam boards showed 25.3 percent of exams were graded A up from 24.1 percent in last year. Girls continued to score better grades than boys in all major subjects apart from further maths and foreign languages. Subjects such as maths, German and physics did not see another slump in popularity.

The Joint Council for Qualifications, which published the results, has paid tribute to the hard work of students.

Overall, 96.9 percent of candidates taking A-levels this summer achieved at least a grade E pass up from 96.6 percent last year.

But the soaring number of students achieving A grades will fuel the debate over whether or not the exams are too easy to be a useful measure of ability for the brightest pupils. app
