A Level Results Day - AoC Comment

15 August 2019

Students across the country are collecting their A Level results today. In response, David Hughes, Chief Executive of the Association of Colleges said: "Congratulations to all students receiving their A Level results today. For many thousands this is an exciting time, preparing to take up a place at university or negotiating a place through clearing. Many others will take a different path to progress to their dream career. Further education colleges offer a wide range of options from apprenticeships or higher and technical vocational education to part-time study options that will allow flexibility around other commitments. Whatever students choose to do after today, I offer my best wishes and good luck for their next steps." While it is encouraging to see a record number of disadvantaged students accepted to university this year, decline in the take up of A Level English, languages and performing arts is worrying. We must begin to address the reasons for the continued year-on-year drop, as all provide valuable pathways to future careers and professions." Ofqual has published some very useful accompanying information, including interactive analytics of the results: An infographic about this year’s A Level results The Ofqual Guide to AS and A Level results for England, 2019 A report on variability in school and college A Level results, 2017 to 2019 Interactive analytics of variability in school and college A Level results, A Level outcomes in England and an interactive map of England showing A Level results in different subjects by grade and county.
