STUDENTS in Henley, South Oxfordshire and Berkshire had mixed emotions as they received their A-level results.
Pass rates at many state schools across the region were down on last year, mirroring the national figures which fell for the first time in more than 30 years.
However, thousands of teenagers will be heading to university next month after achieving the grades they needed.
The Henley College achieved a pass rate of 99 per cent, up one per cent on last year, with 28 subjects at the college recording 100 per cent success.
The proportion of students who attained A* to C grades remained at three-quarters, with 20 per cent achieving A* or A grade.
