Latest NI A-level results the best ever

Northern Ireland's latest A-level results are the best ever, it was confirmed today.

Almost a third of students have won A grades, higher than the national figure of 22.4%, while the proportion of A grades is up by 1.5% to 30%, with girls again having attained more A grade results than boys.

Commenting on this year’s results, CCEA Chief Executive, Gavin Boyd, said: “Northern Ireland students have yet again performed exceptionally well in their A-level examinations and they should be heartily congratulated on all their efforts. Their hard work and commitment, and that of their families and teachers, has certainly paid-off and we are all extremely proud of their achievements."


Students who have decided to cash-in for their AS levels also receive results today.

As with A levels, the popularity of AS levels continued to rise this year, with a 5.8% increase in entries compared to 2003. This figure is notably higher than the under 1% increase in entries nationally.

Increased numbers of AS grades is also good news for Northern Ireland students applying to university as they will count towards their university admissions score.

Across all exam boards in Northern Ireland there are 37,503 cash-ins with 30.4% of entries achieving a grade A.

This figure is up 2.1% on last year and remains well-ahead of the national figure of 17.5%.
