GCSE nostalgia

THE weeks and days before GCSE results day are nerve- racking for pupils.

But for many the grades themselves are a cause for celebration.

Each year secondary school leavers congratulate one another with hugs and have broad smiles for the Evening Mail cameras.

Today we look back into the Evening Mail archives at GCSE results days gone by.

GCSEs have been around since the late 1980s, replacing O-Levels.

There are photographs here from the 1990s from our secondary schools in Barrow, Dalton, Ulverston and Millom.

Two of the Barrow schools where these photographs were taken, Thorncliffe and Alfred Barrow schools, no longer exist. These schools were two of the three predecessor schools of Furness Academy.
