Schools Minister Nick Gibb has welcomed today’s A Level and AS results
Schools Minister Nick Gibb said:
There’s no question that an A Level is a great personal achievement. The last ten days has seen huge public debate about the appalling behaviour of a tiny minority of young people. Today, however, we can all celebrate the success of the hundreds of thousands of students who have worked hard and are collecting their well-earned results.
We should also express our gratitude to teachers and other staff in schools and colleges across the country for their dedication and commitment in preparing their students for these challenging exams.
We want students to leave school with the skills to lead a successful and fulfilled life. Students have done their part by working conscientiously and taking the exams put in front of them. But now we in Government have to do our part to make sure our qualifications match the best in the world and keep pace with the demands of employers and universities.
