THE overall pass rate continues to rise with 97.4 per cent of pupils achieving A* to E grades across Conwy.

Cllr Julie Fallon, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “I’d like to congratulate all our young learners throughout the County on their achievements in this year’s A and AS level examinations. They’ve done so well and worked so hard to achieve these results.

“I wish them all the best as they decide on their future careers, and I'm sure they will all join me in thanking their parents, families, our excellent teachers and support staff who have helped and supported them throughout their studies.”
