Gwynedd’s A Level results: ‘We should be very proud of the success of our young people’

AS A LEVEL results are announced today, Cyngor Gwynedd would like to congratulate wholeheartedly the county’s students on their results.

Councillor Beca Brown, Cyngor Gwynedd Cabinet Member for Education said: We should be very proud of the success of our young people. The students are to be congratulated for their dedication and perseverance, and I offer my sincere gratitude to the teachers and school staff for their hard work during the year preparing and supporting the students so thoroughly for the qualifications.

“I would like to wish our young people all the best as they take the next steps in their careers.”

Garem Jackson, Head of Education for Gwynedd Council, stated that he was extremely pleased with the A Level, AS and vocational qualifications results of students in Gwynedd secondary schools.

He noted: “It’s a pleasure to state how pleased I am with the results in Gwynedd schools. The students and their teachers are to be congratulated warmly on their success.

“I would like to thank the schools and the teachers most sincerely for their hard work and dedication, the students for their exceptional efforts and their families for their continuous support.”

Garem Jackson drew attention to outstanding performance in individual subjects. He added: “Although the numbers sitting examinations vary substantially across subjects, it is pleasing to note that the results are very good in Welsh, History, Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and English Literature.”

The Head of Education also referred to the success of Gwynedd students in their Advanced Subsidiary examinations and wished them all the very best in their A Levels next year.

Ruth Cocks, British Council, Director Wales, said: “My warmest congratulations to the thousands of students across Wales who received their results today. This year’s outcome gives us cause for optimism, with entries to A Level International Languages on the up, defying the broader trend observed in other subjects.

“However, while it is heartening to see this positive shift, there is still a need for caution, with entries across all International Languages still down compared to pre-pandemic levels. As stated in our most recent Language Trends 2022 report, languages are vital for the future of Wales as it seeks to build and strengthen relationships across the world and develop international trade relations.

“Languages enable us to work together on global challenges, as well as opening doors for pupils to discover new people, places, and cultures and connect internationally. We need to do everything possible to keep flying the flag for languages, and the British Council remains dedicated to working with the Welsh Government, schools and educators to make language learning a priority.

“On behalf of everyone at British Council Wales, I wish all students the very best for the next steps in their journey. The world is your oyster!”
