Ciaran Foster, 16, who got six As, three Bs and a C said he couldn’t sleep last night as he was so worried about his results.
“It’s the only time I have felt nervous, there was not much talking in the car coming here,” he said. “I’ve didn’t really understand what it was at first and then I realised… I’ve don’t really well.”
