COLLEGE A Level results were on track but Grammar has fallen behind meanwhile, the College of FE achieved its best results yet.

Ladies College achieved the highest pass rate of the A Level schools, maintaining their 100% streak. Of the 50 Ladies students who took A Levels, 29.5% of them achieved A* and A grades and 61.6% received grades A* to B.

Last year, as well as a 100% pass rate, 88% of students achieved A* to C but this year that number decreased to 81.9%.

Elizabeth College, with 62 students, was not far behind with a pass rate of 99.5%, the same as last year.

The percentage of EC students achieving A* to A grades was by far the highest at 40% and more students also received A* to C grades, 84% – the same percentage as last year.

The Grammar School Sixth Form Centre was slightly behind the colleges. Having achieved their best results in a decade last year, with a pass rate of 99.8%, this year it dipped to 99.1%. However the school had 100% pass rate for IB subjects. There were 532 entries in total.

Almost a quarter of students received A* and A, or equivalent, over half had A* to B and 80% were A* to C grades.

This has decreased from last year where over a quarter of students received A* and A grades and two thirds had A* to B.

Overall the pass rate for England, Wales and Northern Ireland remained at 97.6% this year. However, only 25.5% got an A grade or higher, the lowest since 2007, when it was 25.3%.

The Colleges achieved higher percentages than this, however Grammar saw under a quarter achieve A* to A this year, lower than the UK.

Meanwhile the College of Further Education did considerably better than the UK with a 97% pass rate compared to the mainland's 93.8%. It was a jump from last year when they achieved 94%.

Qualifications achieved by students included BTECs, CACHEs and UAL diplomacy and over 50% of students gained qualifications of distinction or distinction* – equivalent to A and A*.
