Many schools in Ipswich were celebrating improvements to A-level scores yesterday as students discovered if they had made the grade in their quest for a place at university.

Compared to last year’s results A*-C grade pass rates were largely better by a few percentage points.

Some schools also managed to magic 100% for A*-E grades, something only One college achieved in 2014.

While there were no alarming drops in this category at schools in the county town, some did see results fall slightly.

See here for a full roundup of A-level results across Suffolk and Essex.
