  • So looking at all the A2 level results from the various schools, it seems that one of our fantastic new academies, the Open Academy with 59% A*-C is one of the lowest in the county.

  • Wow! Lots of "knockers" commenting here. These students have had to study and do their exams within in a system that we as the electorate have voted for. It would be terrific if people could be a bit more supportive and positive for these young people who have obviously worked hard and have their whole lives and careers before them.

  • Congratulations and all the best to the students of the City of Norwich School. I took my A Levels twenty nine years ago at the C.N.S., are they still valid or do I need to take a refresher? But seriously, A Levels are no guarantee of employment but no education doesn’t help either, and by the way, how long term are jobs these days anyway. A bit of advice, if you can try and get into professional football or formula one, that’s where the money is!

  • Education 21st century style. Teaching to the test, rather than giving students a well rounded education. Bound to fail. Mc Donalds must have the most expensively educated staff in the country as many struggle to get a job when they leave uni with their degree in media studies and the like. University for many is one big con. Many would be better off getting a job instead and starting from the bottom and working their way up. The penny will drop on of these days.

  • Why all the fuss, when I did A levels there were no school teachers on hand to offer help if you did'nt get the results you expected and no help lines if you failed to get the right grade, the whole A level system has been dumbed down as have university degrees.a lot of young people would be better off getting a job instead of going to uni
