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.
For many, their results will confirm university or college places, while others will go into the clearing system, start apprenticeships, or go into the world of work.
