Commenting on the release of the Summer 2016 GCE results, Justin Edwards, Chief Executive of Northern Ireland’s awarding organisation, the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) said:
“The A-Level examination results, received by many students across Northern Ireland today, are recognition and reward for hard-work and a commitment to learning. My best wishes go to all those receiving results, and I wish you the best for whatever you choose to do next."
"Overall Northern Ireland has performed well in comparison to other regions of the UK. Results at the highest grades have risen a small amount and there is stability across all the grades. Northern Ireland is fortunate to have dedicated and focused teachers and lecturers, who play a key role in the success of Northern Ireland learners."
