Discipline 'key' to GCSE achievement

Pupils in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are finding out their GCSE results.

Girls have increased their lead on boys for top grades in GCSEs, in another record-breaking year for passes.

More exam entries were given the top A and A* grades and just under 70% were awarded between an A* and a C grade.

Education Minister Nick Gibb has said students should be proud of their results this year.

He said improved discipline and better teaching had helped improve performance.

But he said that children should be learning more modern languages because that was what employers wanted.
