Congratulations to West Sussex’s A-level students following return of exams

Students across West Sussex who sat the first exams to be held in-person since the pandemic opened their A-level and vocational course results on 18 August.

Nigel Jupp, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Learning & Skills, said: “Congratulations and well done to everyone who received their results today. West Sussex students who sat exams in May and June of this year were among those who sat the first exams to be held in-person since 2019.

“While Covid-19 has continued to present many challenges throughout the academic year, the sheer determination and perseverance shown by students, teachers and their schools has been rewarded by completing the year successfully. Well done to everyone.”
