Thousands of youngsters await A-level results

Thousands of young people across the region will receive their A-level results today.

Last year, the North East had the highest pass rate of any English region - with 98.5% A*-E grades.

However, pupils here were behind the rest of the country when it came to top marks, with just 21.9% graded at A* or A.
