A-level results day 2021: How schools in Portsmouth, Gosport, Havant, Fareham and Waterlooville have performed this year
It has been another successful year for schools in the Portsmouth area as A-level results are published.
Students across the city and in the surrounding towns have been collecting their grades this morning.
It comes as exams were cancelled for the second year in a row due to the pandemic, with the results being based on teacher assessment.
We have had reporters out at schools across the area and are also receiving the grades from other colleges and sixth forms.
We have also pulled together a list of how schools performed in A-level results.
This will be updated throughout the day as we receive the information.
Find out how the schools in the Portsmouth area performed in this year’s A-level results in our updating list:
Overall pass rate of 96 per cent, with 57 per cent of grades being either A* – B or Distinction * to Distinction in vocational exams.
