Commenting on the announcement of todays A-level and AS results, David Evans, Wales Secretary of NUT Cymru, said:
“As ever, we at NUT Cymru congratulate students on their A-Level results. Success is only delivered through the hard work and commitment shown by students and their teachers.
“This cohort has been awarded both new A and AS level qualifications in certain subjects and have clearly risen to the challenge. The fact that the percentage of A* grades at A level and A grades in AS has increased both over the year and 5 year averages is very heartening. Parents, teachers and all associated with the delivery of the exams can take great pride in the pupils’ achievements.
“Beyond the top grades we have seen similar increases overall and that is great testament to the hard work being put in at our schools and colleges. The results represent a great foundation for our youngsters moving forward.
“Rather, we should focus on the positives and reflect upon the fact that students have secured the grades they need to take the next steps in their development. NUT Cymru congratulates them all.”
