Public examinations returned this year for the first time since the summer of 2019, with results, including A-Levels, published this morning (Thursday 18 August 2022).

Kirstie Hurst-Knight, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for children and education, said:-

“I would like to commend all students who have sat the first set of public exams being held since 2019. I want to pay tribute to their effort and determination, given the disruption of the pandemic in the lead up to these exams. We hope they have achieved results which will give them every success in the future as they continue their education or move into the world of work.

“I would also like to thank everyone involved in Shropshire’s schools and colleges community, including our virtual school who support our looked-after students. This includes our skilled and dedicated teachers, headteachers and college principals, governors, support staff, people who contribute voluntarily and, of course, parents and carers who play such an important supportive role. I want to acknowledge how our school and college staff have worked so tirelessly throughout the year to support the students in these examinations.’’

For those pursuing the university route, applicants can log into the UCAS Track service to check the status of their application. If students have not been accepted by the university of their choice there are still many places available through ‘Clearing’. For those students whose results are different to what they expected, their school or college can provide further advice and guidance.
