TEENAGERS in Kirklees did better than many others in West Yorkshire in their A-levels.
A national study showed that around one in eight teenagers scored at least three A* or A grades at A-level this summer.
But in Kirklees the figure was up to one in seven as the authority recorded the best figures in West Yorkshire.
Here the per centage of students achieving at least three A*A-level passes reached 13.8%.
In other areas of the county the figures were: Bradford 5.8%, Calderdale 7.9%, Leeds 8.3% and Wakefield 7.4%.
But the numbers achieving the equivalent of at least two passes fell to 92.7%, compared with 94.8% the year before, according to statistics published by the Department for Education (DfE).
In total, 12.8% of A-level candidates aged 16-18 were awarded three or more A* or A grades, the figures show.
