    Meet the six GCSE students that we'll be following to their 2021 exams. In this episode Nathan McGurl, Founder of The Study Buddy, talks to the students who are taking part in the first Study Programme.

    Over the course of the coming months, Nathan will be talking to these students about what is going well and perhaps not so well and discussing those issues with a panel of experts in series two.

    So for now, tune in and meet Alex, Anastasia, Joe, Lee, Robyn and Scarlett. What will strike you is that these are normal teens. Each different from the other, but remarkably typical of the kind of behaviour, traits and attitudes of so many teens out there.
