Results are typically available to collect around 8am, though times can vary for different schools and colleges.

Here is everything you need to know:

You can claim the offer by spending £7 at Nando's. Available from 11am-11pm.


Las Iguanas

Students with ID and proof of their results will receive three free churros with chocolate or dulce de leche dip.

Top grades are down on last year but remain higher than pre-pandemic levels.

In 2021, the proportion of GCSE entries awarded top grades surged to an all-time high after exams were cancelled for the second year due to Covid-19 and pupils were given results determined by their teachers.

Similar to the pattern with A-level results published last week, it had been expected that GCSE grades would drop below last year but remain above those from 2019 as students returned to sitting exams for the first time in three years.
