Tougher marking is being blamed for a drop in the number of top GCSE grades.
More than 600,000 teenagers across the country picked up their results on Thursday. The proportion of students getting A* to C grades fell. It was down to 68.1%, a drop of 1.3 percentage points. That's the biggest fall in the 25-year history of the GCSE qualification.
The overall pass rate also fell slightly to 98.8%
Part of the drop's being blamed on stricter marking by exam boards but despite those claims there was still plenty of cause to celebrate in the Anglia region.
