Isle students receiving their A Level results on Thursday are being offered are being offered free advice on what to do next.

Careers advisers from the Exam Results Helpline will be on-hand from 8am to provide valuable careers information and advice to students who receive higher or lower A level results than expected.

The service is available to the scores of Isle pupils who attend John Leggott College and North Lindsey College in Scunthorpe.

Delivered by UCAS on behalf of the Department for Education, the helpline opens for 10 days across the exam results period to support schools, colleges and existing careers advice services during a potentially very demanding time.

Last year, the helpline offered a lifeline to over 3000 students on A level results day alone. And, almost 7,000 students across the whole exam results period.

Nick Hynes, exam results helpline adviser, said: “Every year, there are students who don’t get the grades they need for university, there are those who achieve better grades than expected and those whose career plans have changed since they made their original university choices.

“At such a critical and life changing time, it’s imperative that these students are clear what all of their options are, enabling them to make fully informed decisions about their futures.”

The helpline can be reached on 0808 100 8000. Calls are free from landlines. Mobile network charges vary.
