Video: A-level result day - Northern Ireland students show big rise in UK top grades

By Ben Tucker

Thousands of students across Northern Ireland received their A-Level results this morning which has seen a big rise in top grades.

Three in 10 A-level entries scored at least an A grade this year as Northern Ireland students performed strongly.

Figures showed 30.4% received grades A* or A, an increase of 0.9% percentage points on the previous year.

The gap between girls and boys widened as, for the first time, the latter's results slumped when compared across all grades.
