Advice for students getting their exam results this summer
Thousands of students are waiting for their A-Level and GCSE results in August. The A level results will be out on Thursday 17 August and the GCSE results on Thursday 24 August.
We know it can be a worrying time for students and parents alike, especially if you don’t get the results you are expecting.
Our Sandwell Connexions team are running an exam results service on weekdays at the Council House in Freeth Street, Oldbury, between 10 am and 4pm from Thursday 17 August until Thursday 31 August, excluding week-ends.
Our careers advisers will have plenty of advice on a variety of options including apprenticeships, traineeships, jobs, college courses as well as advice on the university clearing process and help with CVs and interview skills.
To book an appointment, or to speak to a careers adviser, please call 0121 569 2955. Parents and carers are welcome to come along with their son or daughter.
Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for children services Councillor Simon Hackett said: “This exam results service is designed to give Sandwell’s young people the best possible start to their careers. With so many options available it’s important to get independent professional advice and guidance.”
