Thousands of Leicestershire students are being wished the best of luck and offered information on next steps ahead of the biggest days in the academic calendar: A Level, BTEC and GCSE results.
Around 3,000 county pupils are set to find out their A Level and AS Level grades alongside a majority of BTEC results tomorrow (Thursday 17 August) and more than 7,500 will find out what their GCSE grades are next Thursday (24 August).
We would like to wish all of our young people finding out their grades the very best of luck, and hope they get the results they need to take their next step.
I know a lot of hard work has gone into preparing for this moment and I'm sure many will be glad the wait is nearly over.
Person:Councillor Deborah Taylor, cabinet member for children and families
Pupils looking for guidance or support after receiving their results should seek help from their school or college in the first instance, where staff will be available to advise on the options available.
Anyone who wishes to appeal or query a grade award should contact their local school or college.
If you feel your grade has been awarded in error after a review has been carried out, you must submit an appeal to the exam board.
More information on appeals can be found on the Gov.uk website.
