IT'S going to be a nervous 24 hours for students across Weston and North Somerset as they wait for their A level results.

Schools and colleges will welcome back a number of those who left at the end of the summer term as they return to pick up their results tomorrow (Thursday, August 17).

Results will be available from 8am onwards.

While most of our students are expected to achieve the grades needed to earn a place at their first choice university, others won't be so lucky and will have to make important decisions about their future.

Ofqual, the exam regulator for England, has told examining boards to aim for the proportion of top grades to be in line with levels seen in 2019 - equivalent to an 11 per cent point drop in As and A*s.

Grade inflation occurred during the pandemic when exams were scrapped and results based on generous teacher assessments.

This year’s A-level cohort in England received the highest GCSE grades on record two years ago.

They are the first batch of students to experience a return to pre-pandemic grading standards.

We are running a live blog on the A level results of schools and colleges across North Somerset from early tomorrow morning.

Feel free to send us your school and college results and photographs to or - and finally good luck to everyone.
