Editor's Viewpoint: Our hard-working students do Northern Ireland proud

Editor's Viewpoint

Once again Northern Ireland pupils have produced incredible results in their GCSEs, with 81% getting A*-C grades. It is also encouraging that more girls are taking science, technology, engineering and maths related subjects, which are seen as vital for building a diversified economy.

Girls continue to outperform boys - unlike at A Level this year - and the gap between the genders widened this time. Alongside those who did very well will be some who are disappointed with their results, but they still have options, such as repeating examinations, or perhaps taking a non-academic route in life which can be very rewarding.
