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.
“We are also committed to building the best education system so that every pupil can go on to fulfil their potential, be it academically or vocationally.
“We have some excellent schools in Essex, and pupils, teachers and parents all play a big part in Essex’s educational successes, I would like to thank everyone for their hard work.”
