Thousands of students have today (Thursday, 16 August) received
A level results while many more will be ripping open envelopes next
week to see how their GCSE exams went.
Nearly 5,000 Medway students sat their GCSE and A level exams at
the start of the summer. For many students, their results could
lead to a place at university, college, training or employment.
For pupils whose results may not be as good as hoped, the
message is don’t panic and take time to assess the situation before
doing anything hasty.
Equally, if results are better than expected, students may want
to rethink their options. Help and advice is available from tutors
and Medway Connexions at Medway Youth Trust (MYT).
As a new extended service this year MYT will open their offices
in New Road, Chatham, on Saturday, 18 August and Saturday, 25
August from 10 am to 1 pm.
This is in addition to the service provided by their office at
24 High St Gillingham. This is open from 10am to 2pm every
Saturday. Parents and students can phone the results freephone
helpline on 0800 046 7603 from Thursday, 16 August to 10 September,
or visit www.medwayyouthtrust.org.
Medway Youth Trust’s Connexions Personal Advisors can also be
contacted on 01634 334 343. They can also text: Medway to 88020 and
an adviser will call you back.
Students are urged to contact admissions teams at colleges and
universities if their results do not meet the conditional offer
grades to discuss whether they can be accepted on to the course or
be offered an alternative.
Medway Council's Portfolio holder for Children's Services, Cllr
Les Wicks said: "Results day can be an anxious time for students
and their families but our students have worked incredibly hard and
I am sure their dedication will have paid off. "I congratulate them
for all their achievements.
"I'd also like to congratulate our teachers for their hard work,
which has helped so many students achieve the results they deserve.
“I wish all our students success in their future careers and the
best of luck to anyone who has sat exams this summer in whatever
they choose to do.”
