Students across Havering open their A-level results today
Today is the day young people across the borough will be receiving their A level results.
Hundreds will be ripping open their envelopes to see if their hard work has paid off.
Our reporters are in schools and colleges this morning getting students’ reactions to their results and finding out what they will be doing next.
We will be updating our website throughout the day with the latest results so keep checking back.
The Romford Recorder will publish a full set of results as soon as they are sent to us from all schools.
