Thousands of pupils across Derbyshire have received A level results – with many securing places at top universities and internships.
As students across the country could finally opened their long awaited results envelopes, A-level results across England, Wales and Northern Ireland have fallen for a second year running with 27.2% of all grades being A* or A. It follows a spike in top grades in 2020 and 2021, when exams were cancelled because of Covid.
In Derbyshire, many students were anxious to find out how they did – with many successful pupils celebrating fantastic achievements.
These photos, submitted by proud teachers and parents, show students celebrating their big day.
