Don’t panic – there is help out there! In order to reach your goals you might just have to go down a slightly different route to get there.
Here’s what to do if you haven’t got the grades you were expecting:
- Take a deep breath – just take a minute to collect your thoughts and regain your composure. This really isn’t the end of the world (although it might feel like it right now) and there are things you can do to help yourself.
- Consider Clearing – If you know that university is definitely the next step for you, use Clearing. We have a post on Clearing: Top Tips which should give you all of the information that you need. Clearing doesn’t open until 15:00 so you have time to think about all of your options.
- Call the Exam Results Helpline – perhaps you have done better than expected or you just don’t know what to do next, or perhaps you have changed your mind; whatever your situation it really does help to talk.
