Students face an agonising wait this morning as they find out the exam results that could shape the rest of their lives.

Many A-Level pupils across Borehamwood, in schools from Hertswood High to Yavneh College, will find out whether they have been accepted into their chosen universities.

The majority of 17 to 18-year-olds have spent two years working towards the A-Level exams typically in three or four chosen subjects, which they sat between April and June.
