This article was last updated on 17 July 2020.
Cue scary music... Results day is here!
All your hard work concentrated in an envelope, or maybe an email or text. If you got the grades you needed, what are you waiting for? Go celebrate!
But if it could have gone better and you’re feeling a bit down, this short film with our amazing coaches might cheer you up – even just a little bit.
If you didn’t get the grades you expected…
- Don’t panic. Whatever’s happened, there are options out there
- It probably feels like the end of the world. Accept that you feel disappointed, but don’t wallow. Be ready to react and move on
- Talk to your teachers. Don’t worry – they won’t think you’re a burden or that you’re overreacting. They’ve seen it all and are in the best position to help you move in the right direction
- Around the time of your results, it might help you to have something to look forward to. Plan something positive – having other things in the diary could help you shift your focus from school.
