West Sussex students received their A Level results amidst new system

Young people in West Sussex have been receiving their A Level results.

A new system this year means that for some subjects, students will have taken their A-level exams at the end of two years of study, instead of sitting modular exams throughout the duration of their course. AS Level results no longer count towards A Level grades.

According to early reports provided by West Sussex schools and academies with sixth forms:

  • Young people continue to perform well at A Level
  • A Level grades for A*-E this year are slightly above the national average.

The changes to the A Level system mean results are not directly comparable with previous years and this may have a bearing on the overall published results.

West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, Richard Burrett, said: “Congratulations to all the students and schools who have worked so hard to secure these results. I wish them all the very best of luck in their next step, whether that is higher education, training or employment.”
