STUDENTS will be finding out if they have made the grade today (Thursday) as they nervously open their A-Level results envelopes at sixth-form colleges and schools across the country.
Pupils at Derby College, Ilkeston Specialist Arts College and Kirk Hallam Community College will be getting their results today.
Other local schools where students will get their results are Heanor Gate, Sandiacre Friesland School, the Long Eaton School, Trent College, Wilsthorpe School and George Spencer Academy in Stapleford.
Another record results year is predicted this year with one in ten students expected to get the top A* grade, compared to one in 12 last year.
But they face tougher than ever competition for university places.
