Camden’s teenagers have been lauded for this year’s set of A-level results, with grades in line with national standards.
Schools across the borough celebrated exam success yesterday on A-level results day, with 77.5 per cent of students achieving A* to C grades – compared with 77.2 per cent nationally.
It is a slight dip since last year, when 79 per cent of students achieved A* to C grades.
But there was a small increase in the borough’s A-level pass rate, up from 98.3 per cent to 98.6 per cent.
The national picture was one of stability, with pass rates in line with last year’s set of results.
