Results day is around the corner

A-Level results day is right around the corner and we know this can be a stressful time for a lot of people. All you really want to do is watch Game of Thrones theories on YouTube but, with less than a week left before results come out, it’s hard to think about much else.

 

But don’t worry! We’ve got some helpful tips on how to prepare for results day; you’ll be well organised and ready for whatever results day throws at you.

Talk about it

If you’re nervous or anxious, talk about it. Tell your family or friends and remember bottling up stress can make it worse, so it’s important to share.

There are thousands of students waiting to get their results, so head to social media to find them and chat. You could always head to The Student Room to find forums; it’s a great place to find answers to questions.

 

Plan the day

Find out where and when you can pick up your results. Schools and Colleges are normally open quite early so it’s worth planning when you’re going to collect the results.

Get in touch with your mates and arrange to go together, or if your parents are available take them with you. While we’re here, we put together some tips for parents for Clearing. #HintHint
