Thousands of anxious teenagers across Brent will pick up their GCSE results today.
The Brent & Kilburn Times website will keep nervous pupils and their proud parents up-to-date today with results statistics, analysis and reaction on our live blog and in our special GCSE results day coverage.
Tough government GCSE reforms in effect for the first time this year could see a national decline in grades.
Resits were scrapped amid the changes, which means students took all exams at the end of their two-year course this summer.
Social media users can tweet their pictures and comments by using our Twitter handle @bktimes and the hashtag #GCSEresults2014.
