GCSE results day 2015
Its GCSE results day this Thursday and students across the UK will receive the grades that will hopefully ensure their progress to A levels, college courses and apprenticeships.
As of 2014 it has been made compulsory for students to remain in some form of education until the age of eighteen. This year the first generation of sixteen year olds will receive their GCSEs knowing there is at least two more years of learning ahead of them. The pressure is on to make the grades required for their preferred places at sixth form and college.
The value of the GCSE, which was introduced back in 1988, is being increasingly questioned by top officials with politicians criticising them as out of touch with modern learning and a waste of time and money. However we are not in the business of politics, we are in the business of helping people achieve their potential and if GCSEs are the way to unlock their future we will be here to help, every step of the way.
