Results days 2016 - what happens now?
This year's results days are almost upon us! Years and years of study, and it feels like a waiting game until that all-important slip arrives in your hands.
Sometimes the rush towards results day leaves little idea as to what comes next. Below is a little checklist that might help:
- Make sure you know what time your school opens to pick up those results. Schools usually have details on their websites, or will have sent information home at the end of exams.
- Make sure you have a parent or guardian on standby to get you in to school for that morning – or that you’ve planned your bus route!
- Make sure that mobile phone is fully charged. For calls to family, updates to social media & of course, those selfies!
- Pick up your results!
And then what?
If you get the grades you want, fantastic! Congratulations! Continue to celebrate, but make sure you check back on all requirements (pesky though they may be during the summer holidays) that you need to complete prior to starting your next adventure into work, or on into further education.
Slightly outside of expectations? Have you planned any other routes? Do you have a plan B?
Above expectations? Even better. Do you want to re-think your plans? Upgrade your ideas for future career? Even if you don’t, it’s still a big deal! Pat on the back and extra selfie required!
Exactly as predicted, below or above your expectations, getting your GCSE results is a big milestone, so whatever grades you receive on the 18th or 25th of August, well done.
JTL ourselves don’t use GCSE or A Level grades as a measure of acceptance or suitability to our courses: our own online entry assessment is the tool we use.
JTL have apprenticeship vacancies live on our website here. And we do run traineeships and full-time courses in some our centres also. We’re not a careers advice line, we can’t solve all of your problems, and we don’t run all of the courses that you might be interested in, but as the leading (and largest) training provider across England and Wales we do run traineeships, apprenticeships and full time courses in the building service and engineering sector.
Once again, best of luck to everyone collecting results over the next week or so - here's to the next step!
