Most of us remember that nail-biting moment – and today it was the turn of thousands of students across Camden to open their GCSE results and make decisions about their next steps.

Our reporters and photographers have been out and about to capture the joy of these teenagers and their parents and teachers - whether they've bagged a glut of top scores, worked hard to overcome adversity, secured a place at college, or simply felt relief at finishing school.

Among those queuing up this morning to find out if their hard work had paid off were students at UCL Academy in Swiss Cottage and at Hampstead School.

It was an early rise during the summer holidays for many, as they made their way into school to open their envelope and find out their results.
