Students across Bath and North East Somerset receiving A-level results today have been praised for their perseverance in their first year of sitting exams after the disruption caused by Covid.

Bath & North East Somerset Council is congratulating the students on their resilience in sitting the exams after having GCSE exams cancelled in 2020.

The council is also highlighting where students can go for help with their next steps after A-levels.

Councillor Dine Romero, cabinet member for Children and Young People, and Communities, said: “For many A-level students this was their first experience of sitting academic examinations as their GCSEs two years ago were cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. Both they and our schools and colleges have coped with the challenges they’ve faced over the past two years incredibly well.

“Students from across Bath and North East Somerset have performed strongly, and I would like to congratulate them all on their achievements. Many will now be making exciting decisions on where their future lies, be that continuing their studies or looking to start work, and I wish them the very best for their future endeavours.

“For those students whose results aren’t what you expected please don’t panic or worry, there are lots of options available to you.  Take advantage of the wealth of advice and support available – your school or college will be able to signpost you to the most appropriate service for your needs.”

Students who haven’t received the grades they had hoped for can find detailed guidance on the Education Hub.
