There's been the biggest drop in the proportion of students getting an A to C grade at GCSE in the exam's history.
Around 68% of pupils got at least a C grade - that's a 1.3% decrease on 2012. It's the biggest fall in the exam's 25-year history.
Sarah Raffray is the Headteacher at St Augustine's Priory, an independent Catholic girls' school in Ealing, in London.
She tells Premier she expected to see lower grades across the country:
Commenting on today's results Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers' union, said:
"Schools and pupils are being put under ridiculous pressures to meet the latest demands from Ofsted and Government.
"As exam and test results are increasingly the only measure by which schools are judged it is no surprise some schools are entering pupils for different exams or entering them earlier.
"Everyone wants the best for pupils but the obsessive target driven culture imposed on schools is stifling learning and pupil engagement.
"We need to get away from the idea that education is for the few and look at how we can educate all students."
