Friday 14th August 7.30 pm : Exam Results: What Next?
As exam results come through, some people will be getting the grades they want, some will have been given predicted grades or class averages due to exam cancellations, and others may feel disappointed or confused about the next steps to take. Tonight we’ll be letting you guys take the lead and sharing how we feel about exam results (only if you want to, absolutely no pressure!) and how to manage those feelings. We’ll also be looking at what practical options are next, such as clearing and adjustment for university. Come along and join the chat, everyone is welcome.
