How prepared do you feel for A-level, BTEC or SQA Results Day?


How prepared do you feel for A-level, BTEC and SQA Results Day?

Results Day is approaching next week for loads of students across lots of year levels and qualifications.

If you're finishing up Year 13 (or equivalent) - this thread is for you!

If you're feeling a bit anxious or uncertain - you're definitely not alone. This can be a pretty daunting time anyway, but having all the changes caused by the pandemic on time might be making it even more stressful for some of you.

So over the next couple of days, if you're not sure where to start or how to get ready; or if you've got questions, we're here to help.

Below I've made a list of some good places to start if you want to get prepared. Plus, if you've got a question we haven't covered, just post a thread. You're guaranteed to get an answer from one of our helpful members, our Clearing and Applications Advisors (who are volunteers trained by UCAS), or potentially the university themselves.

Try not to stress over this weekend - get out of the house, away from screens, and do something you'll enjoy and that really will take you mind off things.

Go to the cinema, play sport with friends, go for a long walk somewhere peaceful, play some loud music.
Don't just sit in your room doing endless 'what if' scenarios in your head - it'll just wind you up.
Go and do something else.
