Nottinghamshire County Council have congratulated students in Mansfield and Ashfield for achieving record results in their A levels this year.
John Peck, the County Council’s children and young people’s services chairman, said A level students have increased last year’s pass rate from 97.5 per cent to 98.4 per cent of entries gaining an E or above.
The figures compare to a 98.1 per cent pass rate nationally.
Coun John Peck, congratulated young people in schools across the county who received their A level and other examination results on Thursday 15th August.
“I would like to congratulate all young people who have worked so hard to achieve these very good results.
“Whilst many of our young people will be taking up well deserved places at universities and colleges, others will now be accessing an apprenticeship which offers work based learning, in partnership with educational providers.
“To those students who have perhaps not achieved what they had hoped for, there are still opportunities to select other courses at university or college or to seek out work based learning through apprenticeships.
Accessing gap year experiences are also an increasing possibility for some young people. These experiences do not necessarily have to be taken abroad but can be accessed through many voluntary aided organisations and charities,” He said
