The National Union of Teachers has praised teachers for 'ensuring such high standards' despite changes to GCSEs this year.
NUT Wales policy officer Owen Hathway said the past year has not been 'the easiest' for teachers or pupils but they have still delivered the highest A*-C pass rate ever achieved in Wales.
Students, teachers and parents should all be rightly commended for these impressive results.
That the percentage of A*-A and A*-C grades have both gone up this year in comparison to 2013's results is fantastic news and is a testament to the hard work, often well above and beyond the remits of a teacher, that goes on in schools right across Wales.
