    What will this year’s results mean for the exams, students and teachers? What are the trends about the A-level results, grade boundaries, expectations etc. Let us know your thoughts about the exam system and results.

    Share the highs and lows of the exam results day here.



    'The proportion of A-level entries receiving the highest grades has fallen this summer, with the share getting the top A* grade dropping to a six-year low.

    Entries achieving a grade of A or above were also down, plummeting by nearly a percentage point compared with last year.'


    'Girls have overtaken boys in gaining the top grades at A level, after they narrowed the gender gap last year.

    Today’s results show that a higher proportion of girls have gained entries graded A*/A, with 25.5 per cent of girls achieving grades of A and above, compared with 25.4 per cent of boys.'

    Are you surprised by this year's results?

    Any sensible teacher won't know their results. They will be waiting until the first day back in September to find out.
