Exam results day dawns

BBC NEWS | Education | A-level grade As up again to 24%.
Ahhh A-Level results day, like the Grouse season, is upon us… When wire photographers can hang around schools and colleges shooting pictures of joyful young ladies without having their collar felt by the long arm of the law the dirty sods. Only the Independent ran with a front page about A-Levels and used an image of an examination hall. It replaced that with a later ‘Bush is crap says Prescott’ edition. Normally August is a slow news month and this is a popular feature, but not this year.

Still, we went with a rare Boys Celebrating shot form last year as news have gone for the girls image and believe it or not boys sometimes do pass their exams as well! For some 2004 was a high water mark with http://www.bbc.co.uk/cornwall/schools/stories/triplets_results.shtml the story of triplets all getting into Cambridge.

    I just got back from getting my A-Level results. They weren’t good – EEC. But I managed to get a place at Bournemouth University through Clearing. So I’m happy. 😀

    Interesting the use of the image: http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/42009000/jpg/_42009082_oxfordstreeti.jpg to illustrate the headline story “UK ‘must tackle ethnic tensions'”…
