GCSE Results Day 2018
The big day is finally here! You have received your results and now you just follow the plan, right? Well, that’s how it’s meant to work out. Although, often in life, things hardly ever go to plan and so you have to be flexible and find another route.
So, right at this moment, as you read this, you are probably in one of three situations:
- Your results have arrived and you’re off to college!
- Your results have arrived and they’re not the results you needed.
- Your results have arrived and now you don’t know what to do next.
Your Results have Arrived: You’re off to College
Congratulations! All that hard work over the past year has paid off and you’re following the route you planned. Enjoy the journey and experience that the next few years of study have to offer you.
Your Results have Arrived: They’re not the Results You Needed
OK, so you did your best, but you missed the grades needed for you to get into your chosen college or sixth form. That’s OK, these things happen, what you need to do now is decide if you want to try again and re-take your GCSEs or if you want to find an alternate college or carry on your studies through online learning.
If you decide to carry on your studies with an online college, the first steps we would advise you to do is work out your learning style. Often, students fail to gain qualifications they need due to the type of course they are studying not suiting their learning type. There are several free tests and quizzes online for you to try, or you can take our Learning Type Quiz to see which of the four learning types you most are like and which type of courses will best suit you.
Your Results have Arrived: Now You Don’t Know What to do Next
So, whether your results were exactly what you were expecting, or they totally missed the mark, you can sometimes find that a summer of fun and relaxation has totally changed your view on things. You might be finding yourself questioning if going on to college or sixth form is right for you, maybe you want a chance to explore life and get a taste of the working world. There are many jobs that you can go straight into with GCSEs or Level 2 Diplomas, including the Armed Forces, Junior Web Designer, Trainee Police Officer or Firefighter.
