14 August 2014 Last updated at 10:21 BST

The percentage of Welsh students achieving the highest A-level grades has risen for the first time in five years, but the overall pass rate fell.

The number of pupils who gained A* grades is up from 6% in 2013 to 6.7% - the highest since the grade was introduced in 2010.

But the proportion of students achieving A* to E grades fell slightly from 97.6% to 97.5%.

Education Minister Huw Lewis said Welsh students had "done us proud".

Hywel Griffith joined students at Coleg Gwent in Ebbw Vale as they got their results.
