Provisional results released today by Doncaster Council show that over 18% of all entries resulted in a grade A* or A – a rise of 4.4% on the previous year.

The figures currently take into account the schools that have provided results to the local authority so far.

Doncaster’s overall pass rate was 99.35% and continues to be above the national average of 98%. This means that more than 1,000 students in Doncaster passed at least one A-Level.

Nationally the A-Level pass rate has fallen for the first time in over 30 years. Doncaster’s overall pass rate has echoed this trend with a fractional decline from 99.9% in 2013 to 99.35% in 2014.

Councillor Nuala Fennelly, Lead Member for Children's Services, said: ‘Congratulations to all who have achieved A-Level qualifications today and I wish them good luck on their future path towards further study and employment. I am pleased to see the number of students getting top grades increasing in a year when the national figure has decreased.’
