COLLEGE students from across Halton have achieved exceptional A Level results this year.
In academic subjects, 99 percent of entries were rewarded A*-E grades, while 70 percent achieved grades A*-C.
Students taking BTEC and vocational subjects celebrated a 100 percent pass rate with 50 percent receiving distinctions.
The number of people in Halton who are qualified to A Level or equivalent has increased significantly with mainly gaining places at their first-choice universities.
Halton Council's strategic director for Children & Enterprise Gerald Meehan said: "The excellent results achieved by students in Halton show the hard work and dedication by not only our young people but their parents/carers, the staff and governors.
"It is so pleasing to see our learners achieve the grades which will enable them to continue their education and learning at universities across the country.
“Stories like this are not possible without successful partnership and teamwork. Congratulations to all.”
