West Cheshire Sixth Formers celebrate A-Level success

16 August 2018

Sixth formers in Cheshire West and Chester are celebrating A-level success today (Thursday 16 August).

Over 2,100 students from 14 schools, academies and colleges across Cheshire West and Chester sat the examinations.

At a time of significant change, with the majority of A-level subjects having been reformed, pupils have returned an overall pass rate of 97 percent compared with 98 percent nationally.

At the highest A* grade the results were 7 percent of all awards. The national figure is 8 percent.

And 26 percent of students gained a higher grade A* - A pass compared to 26 percent nationally.

Councillor Nicole Meardon, Cabinet Member for Children and Families, said: “A-levels are a testing experience and I applaud the outstanding achievement of students. I also want to thank the hard work of teaching and other staff.

“These results will set students in good standing for their future chosen university or career path. I wish them the very best for the future.

“We do recognise, however, that this may not be a time of celebration for everyone. We are here to offer support and guidance for those students whose results may not be all they had hoped for.”
