Photo gallery: Pupils celebrate GCSE results in Camden, Barnet, Haringey and Westminster

Schools were filled with excited shrieks today as nervous pupils opened their GCSE results.

Haverstock School pupil Joyce Chukwuma, pictured, leapt for joy when she discovered she had achieved two As, three Bs and three Cs.

Joyce will study history, English language and economics at A-level, and hopes to one day become a lawyer.

She said: “I’m really happy with how I did especially as I didn’t focus, but I did good”.
