Every year newspapers report on A level results day. Stories often focus on whether this was the best year ever or whether the qualifications are getting easier or harder.

The aim of the A level insight briefing report is to provide Careers Leaders, parents and schools the detailed background data that underpins the A Level Myth Buster. The analysis reveals useful labour market information that can be used in various programmes as well as resources that can be adapted and distributed to teachers, parents and young people.

This report looks at:

  • Decisions at 16
  • Choosing A levels
  • Looking at grades
  • Destinations after A level
