A-level students in the UAE have been receiving their final results on Thursday.

This year marks the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic that grades are based on end-of-year exams.

Thousands of pupils had been waiting with bated breath to find out whether they got the results they need to go to the university of their choice.

Scott Carnochan, Head Master of Brighton College Al Ain told Dubai Eye 103.8's The Agenda that students and schools in the UAE have done incredibly well by navigating the challenges over the past two years.

A-Level is a secondary school leaving qualification in the UK and an international school qualification worldwide.

It is widely accepted by universities around the world.
