This year\’s A-level results have been released, and some interesting trends are emerging.
Overall, the proportion of candidates receiving top grades has decreased from last year. However, this is still higher than the proportion in 2019, when exams were last Sat.
Female students continue outperforming their male counterparts, but the lead has somewhat narrowed. Girls achieved a 37.4% pass rate, compared to 35.2% for boys.
There are also regional differences in results, with students in England and Wales faring better than those in Northern Ireland.
It will be interesting to see how these results affect university applications and places for next year. In the meantime, we\’ll keep an eye on developments and bring you the latest news and analysis.
Despite a marginal decrease, mathematics remains the most popular A-level subject, accounting for 11.3% of all entries. Biology and psychology are the next most popular subjects.
There has been a significant drop in students taking English literature, with entries down 9.4% from last year. This is likely due to changes in the education system, which have placed greater emphasis on STEM subjects.
On the other hand, an increase in students taking psychology demonstrates a shift in focus towards more social sciences.
These are just some trends in this year\’s A-level results. We\’ll keep an eye on developments and bring you the latest news and analysis.
In addition, around 200,000 students received their level 3 BTec results on Thursday, with grades ranging from starred distinction to a pass. The first-ever cohort of T-level students also received their results.
T-levels are the government’s new technical and vocational qualifications, introduced in 2020. Out of 1,000 T-level candidates, 92.2% got a pass or above, and 370 – 71% of those who applied –have been placed on a university course.
