D-Day nears for Redbridge A-level students

Students up and down Redbridge will nervously be opening their exam papers tomorrow as they find out their A-level grades, and the Recorder will be there.

Our reporters will be at schools across the borough capturing the momentous moments.

One student waiting nervously for his results this evening is Nick Reilly, 18, of Derby Road, South Woodford.

The Trinity Catholic High School student needs two As and a B to get in to a journalism course at Bournemouth, or 300 UCAS points for a place at Nottingham Trent University.

Mr Reilly said: “I am really nervous at the moment. I have tried to relax over the summer but in the back of my mind I am going over every single exam anxiously, it’s nerve-wracking.


You may also want to watch:


“Whatever happens tomorrow we will be going out in London. Whether to celebrate or to drown my sorrows.”

The Recorder would like to hear from you if you have an A-level story to tell, whether it be of triumph over adversity or of a stand-out success.
