A-levels: County results above average

STUDENTS in Lincolnshire have performed slightly above the average in their A-level exams.

A total of 98.2 per cent of students discovered they had passed their exams earlier today (Thursday), with many discovering they had got into the universities and colleges they wanted.

Nationally, 92 per cent of people passed their A-levels.

Seven schools in the county achieved 100 per cent pass rates, including Boston High School and The Giles Academy.

Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive Councillor for Children’s Services, said: “In these days when the job market is so competitive and qualifications increasingly important, I am delighted that our students continue to perform so well. Our young people deserve this reward for their efforts – well done to them all and the schools who have helped make it happen.”
