Anxious wait for our GCSE students
Nervous teenagers were today anxiously counting down the hours until they discover how they have fared in their GCSEs.
The county’s students will receive their results tomorrow with early predictions suggesting more than two-thirds of entries will be awarded at least a C grade.
Up to one-in-13 examinations taken in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is set to be an A* - twice the number when the grade was first awarded in the mid-90s.
Meanwhile, girls are expected to pass one in four GCSEs with grades A and A* as results rise for the 22nd consecutive year.
The Evening Star will be covering all of the drama in print and online.
