More pupils than ever in Jersey have achieved the top grades in their GCSE results.
Over a quarter of youngsters have received a grade 7 or above in this year's exams.
That equates to a A*-A grade under the old system of grading.
However, those achieving a grade 4 and above (a C grade and higher) went down from 77% in 2018 to 74.4% this year.
The Group Director of Education in Jersey says the results are a positive reflection of the hard work being done by pupils and staff in the island's schools.
Pupils taking Level 2 vocational courses have also done well with 138 students from Highlands College achieving a 92% pass rate, with 52% of them gaining a distinction.
