Both the Cabinet Member for Lifelong Learning, Cllr. Wyn Jones, and the Chief Education Officer, Mr R. Geraint James, have issued the following joint statement:
“Once again this year Conwy County Borough Advanced Level students have performed exceptionally well, with all grades showing an improvement on the high level achieved last year. Students scored an impressive 80.1% for the higher grades A – C, which exceeded the all Wales average by 3.6 percentage points. An overall A – E pass rate of 98.7% was achieved, which exceeded the all Wales score by more than one percentage point.
“These excellent results have been achieved as a result of hard work and dedication by the students themselves together with the committed and professional support of their teachers. We congratulate them all and wish all students every success in their future careers.
“We also acknowledge and celebrate the achievement of our students in other examinations, which include AS examinations, vocational courses and the Welsh Baccalaureate, although an authority analysis of these results is not yet available.”
