Argus Commentary: Students Should Be Applauded For Their Achievements At A Level Brighton News

There will no doubt be some headaches this morning after the students celebrate their record breaking exam results.

The proportion of A-level entries scoring A or higher increased after exams were canceled for the second year in a row due to coronavirus.

Students were given grades determined by teachers, rather than exams, with students only assessed on what they had been taught during the pandemic.

MP Peter Kyle said the excellent marks reported at Brighton and Hove were a testament to “talent and hard work”.

While this is true, it is also thanks to the determination and resilience of young people who have enabled them to push and strive for their dreams under incredibly difficult circumstances.

This cohort of A-level students had to contend with online learning, separation from their friends, and the uncertainty of what another lockdown might mean for their education – and they still succeeded.

For the first time, female math students outnumbered boys in the number of A * grades achieved, as figures from England, Wales and Northern Ireland show.

And a record number of students have secured a place in their premier university curriculum.

Their final years of school may not have been as they imagined, and while the results won’t make up for the years lost, they are so well deserved.

All this considered, the 2021 class should be applauded for their achievements and wish every success for the future.
