The number of top A-level grades achieved by students in Hackney has improved on last year’s total, a round-up of the results has found.
Provisional results from the council showed that the number of A* to B grades achieved by Hackney students was up 2 percent on 2015, with 46.6pc of exams being graded in this bracket.
However the borough does still find itself below par for top grades, with the national average being 52.9pc.
The number of passing grades obtained increased, however, with 98.2pc of exams marked between A* and E. The national average for passing grades is 98.1pc.
And Anne Canning, Acting Group Director for Children, Adults and Community Health, was quick to commend the hard work of the students:
