THE hard work paid off for youngsters across the county yesterday with numerous schools posting improved A-level results.
Students were last night congratulated on their A-level results which revealed a number of schools have increased their A*-C grades.
Thousands of nervous students opened their A-level result envelopes to learn whether they had made the grade to get their place at university - or if they needed to rethink their plans.
The number of A*-A grades scored by Essex students sat at 27 per cent - 1pc above the national average.
Ray Gooding, Essex County Council’s cabinet member for education, said: “Essex County Council is dedicated to increasing educational achievement across the county and ensuring that all children get the education they deserve.
