It was a day of emotion and success for Redbridge students yesterday as they celebrated receiving their A Level results.
The long wait was over for thousands of students across the Borough as results became available early in the morning on Thursday 13 August.
It was a big day for teachers and school staff too who work hard to create a fantastic learning environment for Redbridge’s young people.
Once again the Borough performed strongly with provisional results showing a rise in the percentage of A* to A grades, despite reports of a national fall in this category.
In total 2590 students took A Level or equivalent exams this year and the average point score per student rose from 757.9 last year to 765. In all 76 per cent of students received A* to C grades and 98 per cent receiving A+ to E grades.
Councillor Elaine Norman, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said, “I’m always impressed with the attitude of our students and teachers which make results like these possible. A Levels come at such an important age when young people are making difficult decisions about their future and the jobs they want to do.
“Once again our students have achieved a good standard of results that will provide a solid foundation for them to pursue their chosen careers or go on to university.”
