A Level Results Day 2018

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Thursday 16th August:  A Level results day is now upon us and although we hope many of you have obtained the grades needed for your chosen University, there will be some of you who may have just fallen short of what you had expected or perhaps you have decided for whatever reason that Higher Education isn’t the path for you at this time. Please do not be despondent as no matter what your results are, you have many options available to you!

 

The most important step is to take a deep breath and take stock of the avenue you wish to go down. If you are still wanting to go to Uni, UCAS Clearing gives prospective students the chance to find places on university courses that still have vacancies, including at a number of top institutions. Please take a look at the below link as a guide:

You can also consider retaking exams so please speak to your Head of Sixth Form or class tutors, there is a handy guide to this in the link below:

There is also the option of taking a break from education and having a gap year which can involve travelling or finding a job. If you do decide to venture into the world of work, this is something we can help with at Alexander Hancock Recruitment.

We deal with office based positions across the board, at all levels, including entry level positions. Please see the link below for some of the entry level vacancies we are recruiting for right now:
