Hard work pays off for A-level students

By on 18/08/2011 in News

Pupils across Birmingham were today finding out whether two years' hard work has paid off as they picked up their A-level results.

Almost 3,000 students across the city's local authority-run sixth form centres have been finding out whether they've got the grades they wanted, with many returning to school for the day to share the moment with friends.

Early indications show that Birmingham schools’ A-level and equivalent results have improved yet again in 2011. We anticipate that nearly all candidates will have achieved at least one pass and that most will have achieved one or more higher grades at A-B.

Councillor Les Lawrence, cabinet member for children, young people and families, said: “I would like to congratulate all pupils in Birmingham for achieving their A-level examination results today. It marks a major milestone as they embark on the next stage of their lives which will see them either continue into higher education, vocational learning, employment or even a gap year. I wish everyone the best for the future.”
