There is a fundamental contradiction in your page one headline (March 24): 'Top NI schools failing at A-level'.
You revisit this subject every year, with the same criticism of the same institutions. If this is so, how can you regard them as "top" schools? It is also a contradiction that, over the last few months, you have publicised the various creditable achievements of a number of these schools.
The headline was simplistic and misleading.
