Students describe their joy after receiving A-level results

There were tears of joy and tears of disappointment as thousands of students across the Thames Valley received their A-level results.

Overall across our region, the pass rate was strong with 97.9 percent of students getting A star to E grades. That's down very slightly on last year's pass rate.

For the second year running, boys have outperformed girls in the top grades. Mel Bloor reports.
