Clearly this is a crucial time for local teenagers and their counterparts up and down the country with A-level results being released last week and GCSEs this.
Every year around this time there is the usual debate about whether exams have become easier or more difficult and whether changes need to be made to the exam system.
But in my view a lot of people lose sight of the fact that a lot of our young people work very hard, put a lot of effort in and get the results from that.
The only thing they can do is meet the targets put in front off them, put in the work and try the best they can.
In my view those who enjoy success deserve praise.
