Today expect photo galleries of gravity-defying teenagers galore.

Pupils across the borough are awaiting their A-level results.

Thousands of students across the country spent a nervous night hoping they bagged the grades for their university of choice.

Breaking with the unofficial tradition of pupils queuing outside the school gates early on results day to receive their marks, this year UCAS Track, the web-based university application service, will let youngsters know whether a university has offered them a place before schools open.

“The majority of teenagers have laptops or tablets, so they can log in on their way into school,” a spokesman said.

“In some cases you may find out a little earlier than 8am, but that is the time at which Track is updated.”

Early birds won’t be told their marks, only their university offers, so you’ll still need to pick up your results.
