More than 30 students were clambering at the gates of Woodbridge High School desperate to get their results over and done with.
Students were outside the school in St Barnabas Road, Woodford Green, while teachers got the results, and tissues, ready.
Monema Chaudery, 17 who was picking up her AS-level results, said: “People were anxious and scared. Some people were really scared and everyone was supporting each other.”
Monema, who wants to study economics after finishing her A-levels, said while she was nervous she felt more concerned about the A-level students doing well.
“Everyone just wanted to get their results, the whole atmosphere was busy and everyone was chatting.”
Students picked up their results at 10am from the canteen where teachers were on hand to congratulate those who did well and give advice to those who were disappointed.
Headteacher Andrew Beaumont said: “We are delighted with the results this year and they continue to go from strength to strength. Students have excelled themselves.”
Many of the students will go onto university while others are going straight into employment or apprentices.
Mr Beaumont said” I congratulate the students and wish them every success and happiness in their future careers.”
