Help at hand for students not receiving predicted A-level grades
10:00am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
WITH A-level results out today, students are being urged to call a free helpline for those who do not receive the grades they were expecting.
Whether results are higher or lower than expected the Exam Results Helpline will be on-hand from 8am today (Thursday) to provide careers information and advice to students or their parents.
Delivered by UCAS on behalf of the Department for Education, the helpline opens for 10 days across the exam results period to support schools, colleges and existing careers advice services during a potentially very demanding time.
Last year, the helpline offered a lifeline to more than 3,000 students on A-level results day alone and, almost 7,000 students across the whole exam results period.
To access the helpline call 0808 100 8000. Calls are free from landlines but mobile network charges vary. Further information is also available at www.ucas.com/examresultshelpline
