In case you didn’t know, it’s results day! Anyone who took A Levels, A/S levels, higher NVQ or equivalent will get their results today.
If that’s you, or someone you know, I’m here to say
Whether you got the grades you wanted, or not, you’ve worked hard. Well Done! Be proud of yourself for making it this far.
If you didn’t get what you wanted, don’t panic…remember these 3 things:
- Your grades do not define you. They can always be changed. There are resits, clearing processes and other possible routes to where you want to be.
- You can ask for help: Your current teachers, careers adviser and the job or further education establishment you were hoping to attend will all know how to deal with this, so make contact ASAP.
- Give yourself a break. Don’t compare to others and do take some time to chill out… in fact, that’s good advice even if you did get the grades you want.
Whatever grade you got and the next step you want to take, I’ve left posts for you on my education page. There’s even a bit specifically for those heading to University.
Enjoy your day!
