THE Exam Results Helpline is open to provide advice and support to students, and their parents, picking up GCSE results.

Careers advisers aim to provide impartial guidance to students who are unsure about what to do next.

The advice includes subject choices at sixth form as well as information on other potential options for students such as local colleges that are available and apprenticeships in the area.

John Carberry, a careers adviser who has worked for the service for over 25 years, said: “A lot of the young people we speak to often aren’t aware of any other options available to them apart from their school’s sixth form.

“In some cases sixth form isn’t the ideal progression for students as the leap from GCSE to A Level studies can be significant and very challenging.

“That’s where we come in, to guide each individual on what’s best for them.”

The helpline has been open for the past seven days and has helped more than 5,000 students.

Mr Carberry added: “Some students who call the line are just simply confused.

“If they haven’t got the grades they were predicted or have done better than expected it can throw them off their plans.

“They want to talk things through with someone experienced so anyone who is unsure what to do next should give us a call.”
