Students celebrate GCSE success

First published in by

Teenagers were congratulated for their GCSE exam results today.

National figures reveal that 69.4% of all GCSE exams were given at least a C grade - down 0.4 percentage points on last summer.

It is the first time the A*-C pass rate has fallen in the 24-year history of GCSEs. The exams were first taught in 1986, with the first exams taken in 1988.

There was also a fall in the proportion of GCSEs awarded the top grades, today's data shows.
