Girls left boys standing in this year's GCSE results, widening the gap between the sexes in the top grades.

The statistics show that 73.1% of girls' entries scored A*-C compared with 64.3% of boys', up from 72.3% and 63.7% respectively.

But boys are closing the gap at the very top, with 5.2% of entries scoring an A* compared with 8.1% of girls', a difference of 2.9 percentage points, down from three percentage points last summer.

Professor Alan Smithers, director of the Centre for Education and Employment at Buckingham University, said he was surprised at the results as he believed that the change to end-of-course exams would favour boys.

They tend to do better in those tests, whereas girls' results rose with the introduction of modular testing.

"I was expecting more change this year than has actually happened," he said.

"I was expecting the end-of-year exams to kick in but it is probably going to take some while for the new arrangement to bed down."

In the core subjects, there was wide variety in how well boys and girls did.

In the sciences, boys closed the gap on girls in chemistry and biology at A*-C but could not catch up in physics as both saw their scores rise by the same percentage points. But at the top A* grade boys closed the gap in chemistry and physics while falling back in biology.

Girls widened their lead over boys in English and English literature, both at A* and A*-C.

Boys widened their lead in mathematics at A* level but in the wider A*-C the girls closed the gap.

Students are dropping separate science GCSEs to ease the "burden of assessment" caused by the introduction of end-of-course testing, an exam board head said.

All three sciences recorded double-digit percentage declines this year, with biology entries down by almost a fifth (18.6%), and chemistry and physics faring little better, at 16.8% and 14.6% respectively, AQA chief executive Andrew Hall said.

It is the first time the subjects have recorded a fall in 10 years.

He said students studying the three disciplines separately were now having to do 12 exams and assessments at the end of the course because of the change from a modular system to one set of final exams, as ordered by the Government.

Instead, they were increasingly opting for the Additional Science and new Further Additional Science courses, he said, which spread fewer exams over the two year course.

The CBI called the figures for separate sciences "deeply disappointing" and warned they were potentially "catastrophic for the long-term health of the economy".

Here's the picture nationally:

The proportion of GCSE exams awarded at least a C grade has risen, official figures show, amid early indications that some schools are seeing turbulence in results this year.

Just over two thirds (68.8%) of entries scored A*-C, up 0.7 percentage points on last summer, according to statistics published by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).

But the overall A*-G pass rate has fallen for the second year running, and is down 0.3 percentage points to 98.5% from 98.8% in 2013.

The proportion of entries awarded the highest grade has also fallen slightly, with 6.7% gaining an A*, down from 6.8% last year.

It is the third year in a row that this has dropped.

The rise in A*-C grades is the first increase in three years, and comes despite massive differences in this year's English and maths results, both of which are considered key subjects.

In total, 61.7% of English entries scored a C or higher this year, down 1.9 percentage points from last summer.

This is believed to be the biggest drop in the qualification's history.

Maths saw an opposite result, with 62.4% of entries gaining an A*-C grade, up a massive 4.8 percentage points on 2013.

Exam chiefs suggested that there were several reasons for the hike in maths results, including a decision that in England, only a teenager's first attempt at an exam would count in school league tables.

This may have meant that fewer lower-performing 15-year-olds are taking maths GCSE early, and bright students, who may have taken the qualification early in the past, are now sitting it in the summer, JCQ said.

In recent years there had been a growing trend towards schools entering pupils for exams early, or multiple times, but the new rule has changed this, and figures published earlier this year showed around a 40% drop in early entry across all subjects.

JCQ also said that the fall in English grades could be down to strong candidates taking advantage of a final opportunity to sit the exam last winter, and a switch by students to take an International GCSE (IGCSE) in the subject.

The statistics show that the gender gap has widened at grade C and above this year, with 73.1% of girls' entries scoring A*-C compared with 64.3% of boys'.

But boys are closing the gap at A*, with 5.2% of entries scoring the top grade compared with 8.1% of girls', a difference of 2.9 percentage points, down from three percentage points last summer.

The figures released today revealed a move away from children studying the three sciences separately, the first drop in 10 years.

All three sciences recorded double-digit percentage declines, with biology entries down by almost a fifth (18.6%), and chemistry and physics faring little better, at 16.8% and 14.6% respectively.

The JCQ said this was down to factors including a move to end-of-course exams and the introduction of Further Additional Science, which covers the same course matter and counts as three GCSEs.

This was taken up by more than 21,000 students. Entries for the combined GCSE science exam entries fell by 16.9% from 451,433 to 374,961, sparked by a 34.4% haemorrhage in the number of 15-year-olds being entered.

The number of entries among 16-year-olds rose by almost a quarter (24.4%).

This has led to a 6% increase in A* to C grades because those delaying taking science until 16 are "generally not high-performing candidates", the JCQ said.

In languages, Spanish was the only one of the three traditional languages to see an increase in entries, with German and French both dropping.

But they did not cancel out a 16.9% rise across the board in language entries last year.

Michael Turner, director general of the JCQ, said: "There has been a significant amount of change to the system this year and although UK level figures are relatively stable we expect more schools and colleges to see volatility in their results.

"The extent of this volatility will depend on how much change from their usual practices they experienced and how they adapted.

"Entry patterns are very different this year. We have seen a dramatic decline in the number of entries from 15-year-olds, which is largely due to a change in the school accountability measure, where a candidate's first entry counts in performance tables, and the move to end-of-year exams in England.

"As we would expect, where the change in entry patterns is greatest, such as the sciences, English and maths, we have seen some impact on results.

"But despite these changes and the potential for increased centre volatility, candidates can be confident that standards have been maintained."

In an open letter to schools and colleges, the JCQ said that those institutions that had traditionally made use of the winter exam season, entered pupils early, or made greater use of resitting are likely to have seen the greatest changes in results this year.

AQA chief executive Andrew Hall said that the biggest impact on exam results this year had been from schools not letting students sit exams early, whereas before they could sit multiple times from 15.

Maths and science were among the subjects most likely to be sat by 15-year-old students under the old regime, he added, with those subjects' results affected this year accordingly.

He said: "What I think is really of note is the change in the 15-year-old results overall. What is driving that is the 'first result counts'. Only the students who are really strong in the school's judgment are being entered at 15, whereas before they were being entered to see how they get on."

There are also two sets of sisters celebrating at Bury Grammar girls today. Sophie Parton and Kritika Yadav, both 18, last week achieved the A Level grades they needed to study Veterinary Science and Medicine respectively. This week their little sisters Katie Parton and Shikha Yadav, both 16, secured 15 A*s and 5 As between them. 

9:38am

Headmistress Bobby Georghiou said: "It becomes increasingly difficult to secure the top grades and yet a quarter of this year group have achieved a clean sweep of 10 A*/A grades. I am also very pleased that so many hard-working girls have secured a very strong foundation for future study at A Level."

9:30am

97% of pupils gained at least 5 A*-C at Bury Grammar Girls and 56.5% of all grades attained were As or A*s.

9:23am

This Is Lancashire:

26 girls at Bury Grammar got 10 A* or A and four got 10 A*.

Morning everyone, Tui here. I'll be visiting Bury Grammar Girls, Radcliffe Riverside, Bury Church and Tottington High this morning to find out how the borough's Year 11s have done.

Judging by number of passes exams are getting easier year by year. Will soon get to a stage when you get a pass for spelling your name right at the top of the paper.
