Nervous students are finding out their grades today as they wake up to results day.
In the run up to the big day, students often try to find out the GCSE grade boundaries - and whether they are higher or lower than they were expecting.
The boundaries show the minimum number of marks you need for each grade, some of which are set after exam papers are marked and often change slightly each year.
The raw mark grade boundary tables change each year, whereas the Uniform Mark Scale (UMS) tables remain the same, reports the Liverpool Echo .
Exam boards used to release their grade boundaries in advance of A Level and GCSE results day, but some now only release them on the day.
Some boards are delaying publication to stop students spending time anxiously estimating how they have done way before results come out.
It came after growing fears it was a risk to students’ mental health, with the wait for results one of the most stressful experiences teenagers have to deal with.
