As young people across Medway receive their GCSE results, the Portfolio Holder for Education and schools has wished them the very best.
Cllr Martin Potter, Portfolio Holder for Education and Schools at Medway Council, said: “Hundreds of young people across Medway will receive their GCSE results today and I hope they will be happy with their results. I am pleased that earlier this week the government listened to young people and schools across the country and that the results will be based on teachers’ predictions, unless the computer algorithm gave a higher grade.
“If you are unhappy with your results, or are unsure of what to do next we would encourage you to talk to your school in the first instance. Our Information Advice and Guidance team is also available to provide support and guidance to young people in Medway, including writing a CV, career advice and applying for further education.
"We know this year has been especially challenging for children and young people but they have adapted incredibly well. I would like to wish all of Medway’s young people who have received exam results this year the very best as they enter the next phase of their education, start an apprenticeship or begin full-time employment.”
