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.”
