THE number of students achieving three A-levels on the Isle of Wight has fallen according to latest figures.
Figures show five schools saw a decline in the number of pupils achieving at least three A-levels, including 22 per cent and 24 per cent drops at Ryde Academy and Cowes Enterprise College respectively.
Three schools saw improvement, with Sandown Bay Academy results going up by 13 per cent.
Overall, just 65.5 per cent of Island students achieved the benchmark, compared to 78.7 per cent nationally.
Meanwhile, the number of students achieving three A-levels at grades AAB or higher — standard entry for the top Russell Group universities — stands at just five per cent. This is one-third of the national figure.
