Rise in GCSE pass rate in Northern Ireland

There has been a slight increase in the number of students awarded A* to C grades in their GCSEs in Northern Ireland.

Pupils received their results on Thursday morning.

As expected there was a fall in the number A* grades, because of changes to grading and the introduction of a C star grade.

The pass rate for Northern Ireland was 82.2% - up 1.1 from 2018.
