Exam results – what to do next

If you have received your A level, AS Level, BTEC, GCSE or other exam results recently, or are the parent or carer of a young person who has, we have compiled a list of resources to help explain exam results and support you with the next steps.

Hopefully, you will have received the results you wanted, but if you haven’t you might be wondering what to do next. You might also think about changing what you wanted to do due to the pandemic.
