My school have seriously let me down. Since I’m on holiday for results day, I can’t collect my results. The only options my school gave me was to either, get it sent home but , we have to supply a stamped envelope OR get someone else to collect my results. They couldn’t even be bothered to email me my results! And I definitely don’t want to have one on my friends take a picture and send it to me , as that would be an awful experience.

Hi,

Thanks for your post.

Most schools will not have the ability to e-mail your results out for you – some schools may be able to put the results onto an internet system, but most will rely on students picking up their results on Thursday morning.

Have you been able to organise anything to ensure you receive your results?

If you are waiting on your results to know whether you have been successful in applying for a university course, you may be able to log onto UCAS Track on Thursday morning and see if there is any information from the universities directly.

Thanks

Tom.

I’m getting them sent in the post and I will get them a week late . The application for 6th form is on results day too, but I’ve made sure with the school that they know that I want to go there .

Hi, I have completed my o levels, with 8 subjects, and have a B in English and ungraded in Maths. I have taken admission for the Certificate Program of Common Law which is equivalent to LLB'1 and for those who do not meet the entry requirements of normal LLB. And after completing 1 hear of this program I'll be in LLB'2. So after I have the LLB complete 3 year University of London degree in my hand, will I be accepted into a Law uni in UK for LLM (Masters in Law)? With a fail in Math O level, without A levels, and with an LLB degree?

Ok, that’s good.

If the school are aware that you are looking to take a place at 6th Form, then they should have things in place to ensure you are offered a place if your grades are suitable.

In addition to this, just to make sure you are covering all possibilities, is there any way you can ask a friend to just remind the school about your 6th form place as well? It’s very unlikely that they will have forgotten about it but it may help you feel a bit better that things are moving in the right direction?

Thanks and good luck!

Tom.

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

As entry requirements can be different at different universities so in order to get the most accurate information, it would be best to speak with the university you are looking to apply to directly to ask the question. That way, you can be sure you are making future plans based on information which is 100% correct.

You can search UCAS (www.ucas.com) for information about different law degrees but when it comes to masters qualifications, the university tends to be more flexible so speaking with them directly is strongly recommended.

Many thanks and good luck!

Tom

Hi, thanks for your post.

Regardless of the grade you receive, it’s completely up to you whether you tell anyone your results! If you choose to keep it to yourself, that’s absolutely fine – if you feel you want to tell people, go for it, you’ve taken a lot on to be doing a GCSE a year early so it’s something to be proud of!

I can’t imagine anyone having a problem or reacting negatively to you taking a GCSE early but if it’s something you are worried about, why not speak to a friend about it first and then you can see what sport of reaction you get.

At the end of the day, it’s something that you have completed and in the long run, having an additional GCSE qualification will be great for applying for future opportunities - so if someone has a problem with it, let them have a problem; you’re the one with the extra qualification, not them!

Hope this helps and good luck!

Tom.

Hi there,

Can I ask if you have done the GCSE privately alongside school?

Thanks,

Sophie.

Thanks for coming back to me.

I don't see any harm in discussing this with the school, you could ask your parents to support you with this discussion as it will mean you won't need to do this GCSE again.

I hope this helps - Sophie.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

This is something that I think a lot of students in your situation are going to be asking themselves right now. It's a stressful time and stress is a really normal emotion to feel especially when you have worked so hard. A little bit of stress is fine but is fine too much isn't good as I am sure you know.

Sometimes the best way to feel less stress is to plan ahead and get prepared for all eventualities.

If there is one thing I would recommend you do it's remember this number - 0800 100 900 (option 7). This is for the Exam Results Helpline, they will be ready and waiting to help you on the day should things not go to plan or even if you have done better and you want to explore your options.

I'm sure you have a plan for what you're doing next, but do you have a plan B?

There's some great support here on TSR and the Exam Results Helpline are also on Twitter to help you out should you want to talk through how you're feeling in the lead up to the day - https://twitter.com/ExamResults2019

I want you to know that whatever happens, things will be okay and you're not alone in this!

I hope this helps!

Sophie.
