Over 30 thousand pupils in Northern Ireland are due to receive their GCSE results.
Exam bodies have marked over 300 thousand papers in the run up to Thursday.
The youngest person waiting on a grade is just 10 years old, while the oldest is 71.
For the first time, a small number of students in Northern Ireland who sat their exams through English examination boards will receive a numerical mark rather than a traditional letter grade.
Under the biggest shake-up of exams in England for a generation, traditional A* to G grades are being gradually replaced with a 9 to 1 system, with 9 being the highest mark.
English and maths - key GCSEs for all teenagers - are the first to move across, with other subjects following over the next two years.
Details of the overall GCSE results for Northern Ireland will be available later on Thursday morning.
