Students across North East Lincolnshire are today receiving the results of their GCSE and A-Level results, as they prepare for the next step on their journey to a successful career.
Students who sat exams for A-Levels will see the fruition of their efforts, with results being published today, Thursday 17th August.
For GCSE students, results will be published on Thursday 24th August.
Whilst both days tend to be filled with a mix of excitement and elation, some students might not get the results that they’re hoping for.
Councillor Margaret Cracknell, portfolio holder for children and education at North East Lincolnshire Council sought to reassure students who might be worried about their results:
“We’ve all been there – nervous and anxious about opening the envelope and finding out if we’ve done as well as we’d hoped. It’s a lot of pressure, and so it is quite understandable if young people aren’t feeling themselves or want some support.
“There’s a wealth of advice and resources out there to support our young people with their mental health, and also to help them to decide what to do once they’ve got their results.
“Finally, I want to wish all those receiving their results today the best of luck.”
The National Careers Services offer support for young people and their parents/carers when trying to decide what to do once they’ve got their results.
