Almost time for GCSE students to find out their fate
10:30am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
IT’S been a tense wait but the day has almost arrived for school leavers to collect their results.
Despite spending the summer trying to forget about the dreaded exam period, the time has now come for hundreds of students in Warrington to face up to reality and see what their GCSEs look like.
Last year, the proportion of GCSEs awarded at A* to C grade in England dropped for the first time since exams were introduced 24 years ago.
In 2012, the results showed that 69.4 per cent of students earned A* to C grades, compared with 69.8 per cent one year earlier.
Despite the national trend, the number of Warrington GCSE pupils achieving an A* to C grade in 2012 increased by 2 per cent to 84.8 per cent.
The number of students scoring an A* to C grade, which included English and maths, was 62.5 per cent - eclipsing their national counterparts.
But now that the nerve-wracking wait is over, the Warrington Guardian will be out and about in schools taking to pupils, staff and parents.
