HUNDREDS of A Level and AS Level students across the borough received their examination results on Thursday, August 18.

A signicant number celebrated achieving the results they needed to go on to study their chosen subject at university and further education colleges.

Schools in the borough described “buoyant” atmospheres as eager students attended to discover the results of two years of study, with Lower Sixth students also receiving their grades at AS Level.

Teachers were on hand to offer congratulations and advice for the future for their students.

Principals said the clamour for a university place was expected to be “fierce” before rise of tuition fees, in some cases costing up to £9,000, is set to take effect as of next year.
