Schools and colleges across Hackney take a break from the summer holidays today as nervy students arrive to collect their GCSE results.
Early indications are that in North Yorkshire in GCSE English 90 per cent of adult learners achieved a grade 9 to 4. Pictured are Eleanor Havershon, Lucy Ramsay, and Emma Arguile.
"The percentage of students achieving the new top grade of a 9 in English is 3.1 per cent - above the national of 2.6 per cent". Broadly the same proportion of students will achieve grade 7 and above as achieved grade A and above in 2016. Pictured are Jack Turgoose and Autumn Usher.
"I am pleased we have sustained our previously good achievement in English and have stabilised our results in maths".
"Other subjects too have been working on two different specifications as the changes to GCSEs filter through all other subjects".
Director of regulation at the body, Jo Richards said the changes made it hard to reliably compare 2017 results with those from previous years. Pictured are Amber Hutchinson and Sophie Leighton.
Teswahen from Crest Academy collected her GCSE results this morning.
"Considering that the exams are harder now we are so proud of the students and the way the teachers have worked with them to prepare for the exams".

A total of 11 students gained grade 9 in English qualifications and the number for maths was also 11.
Out of the 25 subjects studied half achieved 90 per cent or more A*-C grades, with notable achievements of 100 per cent in biology, Spanish and photography, and 94 per cent in PE, chemistry and physics.
"I was surprised with my maths mark, as it is my weakest subject, but I has a great teacher who was my saving grace".
The number of students achieving grades A/7 or above has fallen by 0.5% to 20%- which is the lowest since 2007.
The 16-year-old, who arrived in the country from Poland at the age of nine, said: "I really wasn't expecting to have done so well".
She added: "I am very grateful to the Multi Academy Trust for the substantial level of support they have given to enable our young people to do so well".
Fifty-three per cent of all GCSE grades achieved this year were A* or A (Grades 9-7) and 26 per cent were A*s (Grades 9-8).
