Half of GCSE students to go on to A-Level study

Eight per cent to find work

Just over half of GCSE students on the Isle of Man will go on to study for A-Levels in September. 

Yesterday (12 August) nearly 850 teenagers received their exam results – students also collected IGCSE and Level 1 and 2 grades.

For the second year in a row exams were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture says the class of 2021 should be proud of their resilience after a 'difficult and disrupted period' in their education. 

A third of students are expected to take up a place at University College Isle of Man - less than eight per cent will seek employment.
