A Level Results Out Today
Good luck to all receiving their results today and hope you all get just what you were hoping for.
There's been a slight dip in pass rates in the last couple of years, but as they had been steadily rising in the previous several years this couldn't possibly keep up, anyway. Amid suggestions that exams have been too easy or marking hasn't been as tough as some people think students were getting a lot more A* than were expected, or rather thought possible. Things seem to be levelling off now, and as there were so many competing for the same places in universities maybe this is actually a good thing. We shall see.
