Well done everyone, I can't help thinking though 20 years ago they would have been mostly C's and D's? Soon they will have to introduce A** and A***?

The 98% pass rate says it all (to me).

I think that's higher than daytime TV phone in 'quiz' competitions,

Well done to all those who got the grades they were after, for those who didn't, it's not the end of the world. Some of the most successful people around didn't get the grades they were after either and it just made them even more determined to succeed.

These pass rates kind of make it more obvious why it's so much harder to get on in the world these days. If everyone is passing, what makes you stand out against the rest unless you get A*'s galore. Well done to all though, you can answer the questions you're asked, no matter how basic.

I really wonder if the people posting negatives comments about student successes actually know the amount of hard work and dedication that gets put in so these grades are obtained. I would suggest not.
Well done to all who passed , and keep trying to those who did not.

Are you trying to tell me the near 100% pass rate today is down to students hard work? Try asking a university lecturer if they think the standard of first year students nowadays backs up that high pass rate?

Well done to all, EXCEPT the Echo writer. These young people even when using 'social-media' (which is usually peppered with mistakes) is written with better grammar/spelling etc, than some of the wording by the Echo writers. Suggest some of these students get a job with the Echo.

I think you'll find the person responsible at the Echo probably got A*'s in their A-Levels too ;-)

I was doing my GCSE's 10 years ago and my A levels 9/8 years ago... I know how easy they are, I didn't even revise and came out with great results.

As said above, there is nothing special about passing these days or getting A*'s, when everyone and their dog is getting them.

These results really do mean nothing, common sense and a willingness to learn is what you need in the real world, not an A* in RPSE or English.
