A-Level results day: ICT has lowest pass rate in UK

From IT Pro

"The state of the UK's IT education continues to plummet, as 2016's A-Level results reveal that ICT has the lowest pass rate of any A-Level subject.

Just 10% of students who took the subject achieved an A* or A grade, compared to more than half of further maths students.

In addition to this, the number of students actually studying the subject has also declined significantly, with a drop of 3,300 in the number of students enrolled on an ICT A-Level course.

While the government is planning to phase this course out in favour of the computing A-Level, the pass rate for computing students also remains somewhat disappointing, with under 20% of students receiving an A or A* grade.

These results could prove to be a problem for the IT industry in the future, according to Rethink Group COO Andy Lord.”
