Thousands of students collecting 2013 GCSE results across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch

Last updated:

Thousands of pupils are getting their GCSE results this morning across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch.

  • There are predictions GCSE results could fall this year due to major upheaval in the exams system.
  • Last year the proportion of GCSEs awarded at least a C fell for the first time in the exam's history.
  • GCSE English grades also suffered due to grading problems.

    Don't despair if your'e results aren't up to par. Opportunities abound at the
    local colleges, Brockenhurst college and Bournemouth and Poole college.
    Also Adult learning at Oakdale will help you to get the grade you needed to
    apply for chosen Uni or Apprenticeships!

    There is nothing 'funny'. The schools receive the results before today and need time to prepare the individual results papers for the students as well as work out who will go up to 6th form. So quite feasible for the schools to send summary results to the media ahead of the students for publication today..

    What's the matter Keith, life didn't pan out as you hoped?

    I can't work out if you are a troll or just a prize clown.

    Very well done to all , the next step is one of the most important steps you make in your life so think about it. Maybe it would be ideal if you could get apprenticeship. But also try and avoid the micky mouse courses the collages offer , ie media studies every student seems to want to do that just for a easy life. Work hard towards what you want to do but be realistic with the jobs and wages on offer. Not everyone will land a 30k job in the first year. Hard work can reap great rewards .

    Well done to all. While our schools congratulate themselves it is time for our Education Authorites to look at the amount of time our Secondary Schools are open and whether our children are able to attend for the minimum number of days. Compared to our Primary Schools, secondary Schools seem to take a lot of additional days for closures. At the end of last term St Peter's closed 4 days early and Twynham 3 days. Both schools had had several days closures during the year. As all schools are supposed to be open for 190 days, I must ask are our Secondary Schoolchildren being deprived of several days education. Time for Ofsted and the Authorities to look into this.

    Oh dear the class war is still going on but someone has to do the rubbish jobs
    I suppose. I hate war and wish we didn't send young lads to be killed.

    Post code lottery dictates which school your child will attend and unless they
    pass for Grammar its a lottery! Statistics show Comprehensives fare better
    and also Faith schools.
