GCSE Results

Champagne (non-alcoholic, of course)

Congratulations (or commiserations) to everyone who got their GCSE results this week. There were some very good results at the Duke of York's (go Chemistry!), and I was really pleased with the RS results. 

Nationally, there has been another drop in the proportion of students attaining the highest grades, with fewer students attaining A*/A grades (from 22.4% of entries in 2012 to 21.3% in 2013). The percentage of students gaining "good" A*-C pass grades has also fallen, to 68.1%. Call me a cynic, but I suspect that this trend towards lower GCSE grades will be reversed just in time for the next election...
