Fall in London top A-level grades 'could be about teaching'

The number of students in London getting the top grade at A-level has dropped by 1.4%, the biggest fall in England.

The latest results come amid major changes to the system, with January exams scrapped, leaving fewer opportunities for students to re-sit papers. All exams are now taken in the summer.

There are many different reasons why results have changed in London. It could be about teaching, it could be about the subjects that students are taking.

But getting an A Level is a huge achievement for students and I would like to say well done to all of those who have got their grades today.

– Nicky Morgan MP, Education Secretary
