You can see how schools and colleges have fared through our live blog at www.newburytoday.co.uk, which will start at around 8.30am this morning.
This year, GCSEs in England have been reformed in a bid to make exams tougher.
Instead of the traditional A*-G, students will not be graded on a scale from 9 to 1 for a number of subjects.
Grades 9, 8 and 7 are broadly equivalent to an A* and an A.
Grades 6, 5 and 4 are in line with B and C grades.
A grade 4 is broadly equivalent to a C grade.
