A-level results 2019: Students await results from reformed exams - live
Almost all A-levels have now been reformed, with the continuous testing of the previous regime removed and almost everything now riding on final exams
Young people in Britain are increasingly sceptical of the need to go to university and are more aware of apprenticeships, according to polling.
Sixty-five per cent of young people up to the age of 16 said they thought it was important to go to university, continuing a downward trend seen since 2013, when 86% said a university education was important. A year ago the figure was 75% .
We’d like to hear how A-level results day has been for you. Are you trying to find a university place through clearing after missing out on grades, or did you choose to bypass Ucas and instead go through clearing? Did the high cost of university influence your choice of subject? Have more pupils pursued vocational and STEM subjects instead of arts, like English?
