Today is Results Day 2021. Across the UK, A-Level, AS Level and BTEC/HND students receive their final results after what can only be described as a tumultuous time of Sixth Form studies. Many students were assessed by tutors, so few exams were sat but this milestone event between school studies and further education is still one of the most stressful days for our young people.
We’ve compiled a useful list which we hope will offer help if today’s results are not what was expected, or if they cause a change of course for future plans.
As well as UCAS, which is a useful contact point for Clearing and includes a great resource to chat to students who have gone through Clearing themselves, these charities and organisations provide advice on mental health and exam stress. We’ve included URLs and direct links to content where we think it is most useful.
It’s also worth keeping an eye across social media channels as some other fantastic resources will likely be shared today.
Empowering students and members of the university community to look after their own mental health, support others and create change.
