Your live reporters appear to have been too late for The Cooper School Bicester results, so here they are:
91% 5 A*-C
66% 5 A*-C including English & Maths (up 5% on last year).

Well done to everyone involved, not least my boy who got a load of A*-Bs.

At last the exam boards are marking in an appropriate manner. Schools are not teaching spelling, grammar, and are
sending pupils out into the world of work or further/higher education with little more than an ability to write in text-speak. The fact that some pupils have achieved the A or A* mark proves that marking is, at last, taking into account the necessity of knowledge of the written English language.

Mrs, I thought that the lowest grade was F for fail. My god they have really lowered the standard if you can get a G. When I ws at school a C was classed as a fail, only a B was adequate. What does a G get you nowadays? Could it be hidden away in The Stores in Tesco, or Street cleaning for Kebab Kid. I need to froward your letter to the Guardian as you admit that 2% of the kids did not even get a G. They will love that.
Back in our day exams were graded differently. We had the O Level and CSE exams. The new GCSE exam means that all pupils sit the same exam, although some at a higher difficulty level. This means grades need to be wider. So a G is not a fail, it's the lowest pass mark. Don't mock those who don't have the academic ability of others please; it takes all kinds of people to make society function and I don't see someone with nine A* grades emptying your stinky bins or stocking the shelves in your local shop, but if it wasn't done you would be the first to complain I'm sure.

Thanks Feelingsmatter. It is sad when people denigrate childrens efforts. As far as I know the D to G grades on GCSEs are the equivalent of the of the pass rates of the old CSEs.
