TODAY'S images of youngsters picking up their GCSE results will look much different to these taken twenty years ago due to social distancing.

Today is the day when thousands of youngsters across Hampshire find out their exam results and put an end to their anxious wait.

Although some will no doubt obtain their grades via the internet, many will still venture to school to celebrate or commiserate with friends

Twenty years ago exam results were not available online, so youngsters turned up at their schools in droves, each of them eager to find out how they had done.

The date was August 24, 2000 when these images were taken – the second and final set in our nostalgic visit back to GCSE results day 2000.
