For students who may have received some unexpected results, the national exam results helpline will be open until noon on Saturday (24th August).
Parents and students can talk to experienced, impartial and friendly careers advisers who will talk through what options are available, including higher education, taking a gap year and finding employment.
David Murdoch, a student who called the helpline, said:
“It was really great to have someone properly explain my options - what I could do, alternatives I hadn’t thought about, and the processes I needed to go through. Best of all, I got objective advice.”
The Exam Results Helpline can be reached on 0808 100 8000. Calls are free from landlines. Mobile network charges vary.
