Commenting on A-Level results day, a spokesperson for Universities Wales, said:
“Congratulations to all the students who collected their results today.”
“In challenging circumstances, students have shown themselves to be resilient, dedicated and adaptable, and they can now look forward to the next step on their journey, which, for many, will include studying at university. It’s great to see that so many young people in Wales continue to value the benefits of university, with the proportion of 18-year-olds in Wales applying to study at university at record levels.
“For those who did not get the results they had hoped, or are still undecided, there are many options in Wales available to students through clearing. Universities throughout Wales are providing places through clearing and have advisors waiting to advise students on the options available to them.”
“Welsh universities were rated top or joint top in more categories than any other part of the UK in this year’s National Student Survey, and students starting university in Wales this autumn can be confident that they will benefit from high-quality, rewarding courses, and a leading student experience that will help them fulfil their potential.”
