GCSE Results 2019: How did Surrey and Hampshire do?

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 5:21pm 22nd August 2019.

GCSE pass rates have risen again this year, despite concerns about the difficulty of exams.

More than one-fifth of pupils were awarded top marks, with 20.8 per cent taking home either a 7, 8 or 9, which replaced A*s and As in almost all subjects last year.

Only 837 pupils in the whole country scored a clean sweep of top marks, consisting of all 9s.

Included in that was James from Guildford County School.

He said: "Really happy with that - I think there were a few of the subjects which were a bit of a surprise.

"It's just relief I think, it's been about two months now since the last exam so it's been building up to this day for quite a while."
