More students across North East Lincolnshire are set to receive their GCSE results this week. Results will be published on Thursday 24th August.
During the often nerve-wracking build up, it may be useful to have some advice on tap to help dispel any worries.
Councillor Margaret Cracknell, portfolio holder for children and education at North East Lincolnshire Council said:
“I’d like to take this opportunity to wish our students the very best of luck.
“The run-up to Results Day can be particularly challenging time with lots of young people worried about what they will see when they open the envelope.
“At North East Lincolnshire Council, we want to make sure that as much support is available as possible to help them out during this part in their lives.”
The National Careers Services offer support for young people and their parents/carers when deciding what to do once they’ve got their results.
Exam-specific content can be found on the National Careers Service (NCS) website, social media, webchat. Over the phone and face-to-face appointments are available to those aged 18+ locally by contacting the NCS team via the email [email protected] or by calling 01472 323540.
