BBC Breakfast News was broadcasting live from Ysgol Dinas Bran in Llan this morning as the A Level results were announced.
The reporter stopped one young man as he came into shot and asked him if he was prepared to open his results envelope live on air.
The student, named Chris, seemed a little stunned but agreed to it.
When he tore open the envelope he seemed pleased with what he had achieved and declared they were “good”.
Headteacher Alison Duffy was then interviewed and described the school’s’ results as “absolutely wonderful”.
She said exam boards had this year made this year’s A Level papers harder but that Dinas Bran students had risen to the challenge and done a “fantastic” job.
She added that she and fellow staff members had been talking to parents about the results and looking at different options for what students could do with them.
Student Chris said that with his good set of results he might head for a place at Aberystwyth University.
