Just over one in every seven (14.9%) Southampton entries achieved an A-Level A* or A Grade in 2019, an increase of 3.6 per cent on the proportion of entries achieving the same grades in 2018.
A year-on-year increase was also seen in the proportion of entries attaining grades A* to C, which has risen by 2.4 per cent to 65.1 per cent.
Today’s provisional results show an overall improvement in grades attained when compared with the previous year, with an increase in the average points score – which is based on all A-Level grades that students have achieved – from 27.2 to 30.7.
Councillor Darren Paffey, Cabinet member for Aspiration, Children and Lifelong Learning at Southampton City Council, said:
“I’d like to congratulate those students across Southampton who worked hard through their studies and in the lead up to their exams and can now look forward to deservedly celebrating their success. I wish them well as they plan for the future.
“I’d also like to recognise our hardworking teachers and staff who played an important role in giving these young adults a successful start in life.”
