NERVOUS pupils will be receiving their GCSE results throughout today.
Schools across the borough will be handing out the results which could determine many young people's futures.
Harrow Council Portfolio Holder for Children, Schools and Families, Councillor Zarina Khalid, said: "Congratulations to all of Harrow’s pupils who are collecting exam results today. Our pupils who are getting their results today, as well as students who received A-Level results last week, should be immensely proud of themselves.
"I would also like to thank all staff, as well as parents and carers, who have guided them to this milestone point in their education.
We have fantastic schools in Harrow, producing brilliant results year-on-year, of which I am sure all our residents are proud. "
The Department of Education revealed that this year there is a record number of entries in biology, chemistry and physics as increasing numbers of pupils enter exams in the separate sciences rather than in core and additional science.
Education Minister, Elizabeth Truss said: "It is very pleasing to see the increase in these important subjects, the ones that will keep pupils’ options open in the future.
"The EBacc is the platform for young people to go on to A levels and high-quality vocational study. It will help them compete with their peers in the world’s best education jurisdictions, where they are expected to study a rigorous academic core."
