Students across the country will be receiving their GCSE results this morning – but some could be in for a shock after reports of “turbulence” in this year’s grading.

Lincolnshire Free Press reporters are out and about this morning at all our local schools, talking to headteachers and students about their successes and what they plan to do next.

We will have updates on throughout the day, including all the results as they come in.

Nationally, 6000,000 teenagers will be receiving their grades today, but Ofqual, England’s exam watchdog has warned that science grades could fall because papers were toughened up.

Grading was also tightened for English and maths, but this year for the first time extra marks have beenawarded for good grammar and spelling in key subjects.
