There has been a fall in the proportion of A-level grades awarded an A or A* for the first time in over two decades.
This summer’s results show 26.6% of A-level entries achieved the top two grades – down from 27% last year. Although girls have continued to outperform boys for getting A grades – this year saw boys narrowly ahead of girls at achieving the highest A* grades – 8% compared with 7.9%.
However, the figures published by the Joint Council for Qualifications also show that the overall pass rate has risen again for the 30th successive year.
