Pembrokeshire County Council has congratulated all learners who have received GCSE and level 1 and 2 vocational results today (Thursday 12 August).
The council have said that learners’ achievements this year are to be celebrated as they are in any other year.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought continuing challenges for learners, families and schools this year with results being calculated by centre determined grades.
The council added that schools have worked effectively to ensure that learners’ skills and achievements have been recognised through following robust assessment processes prior to submitting results to examination boards.
Cllr Guy Woodham the Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning, said: “The last 18 months have been difficult for all learners, their families and schools. I would like to congratulate all learners on their achievements.
“As a Local Authority, we have been committed to supporting learners in achieving the best possible outcomes. Learners who have received their results today will have acquired a range of skills that enable them to be lifelong learners and hopefully achieve more than they thought possible. I wish all learners every success for the future.”
Director for Education Steven Richards-Downes said: “Every learner who has received their results today should be equally as proud as learners in previous years.
“Learners have shown great resilience in the most uncertain times and every learner will have a range of options available to them to help them continue with education, training or employment.”
