Wales' pupils on another record high A-level pass rate.
WLGA education spokesman John Davies said:
'This formidable pass rate marks Welsh pupils' continuing effort and dedication to achieve the highest standards of excellence. Today is clearly about celebrating our pupils' success and their remarkable achievements, but we should also recognise the commitment and contribution of our education professionals, both within schools and local authorities across Wales.
'Welsh local authorities continue to invest in providing an excellent education system for Welsh pupils and today's results are a clear indication of our continued commitment to education in Wales.'
