Statement from Education Minister, Kirsty Williams on A/AS Level and Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification Results 2020
Statement given yesterday by Education Minister, Kirsty Williams.
I want to send my very best wishes to everyone who receives their A-level, AS, Welsh Bacc and vocational qualification grades today.
Due to the many changes we’ve had to make this year in exceptional circumstances, you’ve had to make many sacrifices.
But you have every reason to be proud of all the work you’ve done, which will serve you well, and proud of the determination you have shown to overcome this challenging time.
As announced yesterday, we have guaranteed that a learner’s final A Level grade cannot be lower than their AS grade. Students in Wales, and prospective employers and universities across the UK, can be assured that their A Level grades reflect their work and externally assessed exams.
I hope you get the grades you’d hoped for, and you can continue with your educational journey in the autumn. Although many of you will be pleased with your results and excited for your next step, if you didn’t get what you’d hoped, there’s plenty of options & advice on Working Wales.
Best of luck, and best wishes for the future.
