2014 A Level results

The 2014 A Level results were published in August. In a context where the recent “first results count” reforms have led to large numbers of students deferring entry for a year, the JCQ said about A Level language entries:

“Although French, German and Spanish all had fewer entries than last year (down 7.4, 0.1, and 0.6 per cent respectively), as a proportion of all UK entries there is stability. The proportion of candidates awarded A* in these modern foreign languages increased.”
