AFTER pupils across Tynedale and Ponteland received their A-Level and GCSE results last week, we decided to take a look back at when some of our district's former pupils found out their grades.

For a second year running due to the Covid-19 pandemic, pupils received their results online rather than going to their school to collect them.

Students have been given grades determined by teachers, rather than exams, with pupils only assessed on what they have been taught during the pandemic.

Teachers in England submitted their decisions on pupils' grades after drawing on a range of evidence, including mock exams, coursework and in-class assessments using questions by exam boards.
