NERVOUS teenagers are today waking up to their long-awaited A-level results.
Students across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will this morning find out if they’ve made it to their chosen universities.
UCAS, however, has said that more students than ever face clearing after missing out despite grade boundaries moving to make it easier.
National figures today showed that the proportion of students awarded an A grade or higher has fallen to the lowest for 12 years.
Girls narrowly clawed back the lead from boys in terms of A* and A grades, although boys still outperformed their female classmates in the highest result.
