A Level Results 2019: Island's overall A level pass rate is 98.4%

Thu, 15 Aug 2019

Students from the Island's five secondary schools have been receiving their results today.

Over 300 Year 13 pupils were entered for 900 full Level 3 qualifications in over 50 different subjects.

Alongside full A Level and BTEC Level 3 qualifications pupils have taken AS and other qualifications that carry UCAS points such as the Extended Project and London Institute of Banking and Finance exams. 

Some of the key details from the results analysed today are as follows:

  • The Island’s overall A level pass rate (A*-E) was 98.4% which is in line with previous years.
  • The percentage of passes at the higher grades of A*-B was 42% which is lower than last year’s record but is in line with previous years.  This is part of a national picture today with fewer numbers of A* and A grade results being awarded by exam boards across England, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • Through continuing sixth form collaboration across secondary schools, the breadth of options available at Level 3 has remained wide. Subjects such as Agriculture, Business Enterprise and Entrepreneurship as well as Health and Social Care are offered to pupils across the Island alongside more traditional A Level subjects.  
  • Performance was particularly strong in Mathematics, History, Geography and Art & Design A Levels and in Agriculture, Sport and ICT BTEC Level 3s.

Across the Island, individual pupils have attained outstanding results, with several pupils recording 3 or more grade A* and A or equivalent passes.

Graham Cregeen MHK, Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, welcomed today’s positive set of exam results. The Minister said: ‘I would like to congratulate all pupils receiving results today as these outcomes represent two years’ of concerted effort with learning on the part of pupils and significant support from both staff and parents."
