Cardiff beats Welsh average for A Level results

A*mazing A Level results have been awarded to Cardiff students with the capital securing one of the highest pass rates.

More teens sat their exams this year compared to last year and the overall pass rate for the city is 97.7% – up 0.6% on the Welsh average.

Grades between an E to the new A* are considered a pass and a staggering 28.8% of students earned an A or A*.

The higher grades are meant to help universities decipher the top potential undergraduates, yet a shortage of places coupled with surge in UCAS applicants means many will still struggle to get a place.

Chris Jones, Chief Schools and Lifelong L earning Officer, said: “I am delighted to once again congratulate Cardiff’s sixth form students on their success which is the outcome of much dedication and hard work over the course of their studies.

“I am sure that families and teachers across the city will be as pleased as I am with their considerable achievements. I wish them all the very best for their future careers,” he added.

#Tweet_Opinion: Congratulations to everyone involved and hopefully the hard work will pay off and you’ll be a fully fledged undergraduate ready to enrol next month.
