You will need to be eagle-eyed as the colourful puzzle is full of pencils, books and paper clips.

Will you be top of the class?

If you are looking for a hint, you may wish to check out the right hand side of the picture.

And if you still need some help, you can scroll down to see the answer.

This little teaser comes from distance learning provider Oxbridge, who have highlighted the most popular A-levels in the last year.

Based on Oxbridge’s research, the top 5 A-levels are Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Computer Science.

These courses open up a breadth of career opportunities and the addition of Computer Science highlights the changing nature of digital roles.

Students are today getting their A-level results after sitting the first exams since Covid – with grades overall lower than last year.

The wait for pupils in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is over, with their A-level grades meaning the difference between attending  university or not – and subsequently deciding the start of their career paths.

And new stats show the “Covid generation” has seen “lower than expected grades” this year.

The proportion of candidates receiving top grades has fallen from last year, but is higher than before the Covid-19 pandemic.

A total of 36.4% of entries were awarded either an A or A*, down from 44.8% in 2021 but up from 25.4% in 2019.

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) said the overall pass rate – the proportion of entries graded A* to E – fell by 1.1 percentage points from 99.5% in 2021 to 98.4% this year.

But this is up by 0.8 points from 97.6% in the pre-pandemic year of 2019.
