Dan appears on p4 of The News

GCSE results day was last Thursday, and Dan had the nerve racking task of picking up his envelope from school at 9:30 along with the hundreds of other students who had completed exams this year.

His experience was made even more stressful by the arrival of the media who immediately began interviewing him. Several photographs later and he finally made it past the papparazi to collect the brown envelope that would quickly prevent him from ever getting through a normal sized doorway ever again.

Despite spending all his revision time writing (including the many articles on this blog) he still managed to get an astonishing 3 A*s, 4 As, 3 Bs (and a lonely C). This is in the context of the BBC arguing that English was the hardest exam ever set for GCSE students.

As a result he got p4 placement in The News (circulation circa 40,000) resulting in the scan above (which caused a 50% surge in the month to date sales total).
