Almost 98% of Wokingham borough A-level students have passed – and there’s been a big increase in A*-A grades

YOU’VE all done very well. That’s the message to A-level students from Wokingham Borough Council’s executive member for children’s services. 

Cllr UllaKarin Clark was full of praise for the teenagers, after learning that the number of top grades – A* to A – has increased by more than fifth over last year. 

This, she said, is in contrast to a national decline in top grades. The percentage of pupils achieving A*- C grades remained the same as 2018’s results at 74.4%. 

The 2019 results were published on Thursday, August 15 and, across England and Wales, pupils returned to school to learn their results. 

Locally, Wokingham’s average for a pass – grades A*-E – is also above the national average, with many schools scoring almost 100%.

The overall average for schools across the Wokingham borough is 97.7%. 

Cllr Clark added: “I’m sure teachers and parents will join me in congratulating all the students on these fantastic results. It takes hard work, perseverance, and commitment to achieve grades such as these. 

“I’d also like to thank the hardworking teachers, who have worked long hours to ensure students have been supported throughout their studies.

“I especially wish to congratulate students who achieved the results they were aiming for. I wish them every success in their next steps, be that higher education, apprenticeships, or entering the workplace.”
