As suspected, our fears were well founded. This cohort’s results have taken a massive hit in comparison with the teacher-assessed grades during the pandemic, with top grades (As and A*s) tumbling by 8.4% compared with last year, and more than 28,000 students set to miss out on a university place.
The number of people going to university will be the same whatever A Level results are. Sure different people going to different places perhaps, but grade offers will fall until all places are taken. Right?
