Oxfordshire County Council has released a statement congratulating A and AS Level students in the area.
The council also said that early signs indicate that 90% of students received two or more A-Levels at pass rates rades A* to E. While around 46% attained grades A* to B, 13% up on last year's results.
“I am delighted that so many students have received such magnificent results today and that the anxious wait for them is finally over. The results show how hard they have worked and are also testament to the quality of the teachers in the county. Parents also play a crucial role in supporting their children through the exam period, which can be extremely stressful. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and support and congratulate the students on their achievements.
– Councillor Melinda Tilley, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools
“Of course, not all students receive the results they were hoping for, but I would like to reassure them that there is support available, through the Oxcentric website, support sessions at schools and through the National Careers Service which also has a helpline number - 0800 100 900. These services all work hard to help show young people what options are available to them.
“I would like to wish all the students every success in their futures as they start the next chapter in their lives.”
