It can be a day of excitement and nerves, laughter and relief but GCSE results day has been particularly difficult this year.

With no exams to take and uncertainties surrounding how exams were going to be graded it’s been a results day unlike any other.

For many students it was a relief for many students to be able to finally open the illusive envelope and see what all their hard work had amounted to.

We’ve selected some of our favourite pictures of students and their families and friends celebrating the big day.

From laughing and jumping to tears of joy it was an emotional day for the class of 2020.
