‘Stay positive’ advice for exam students

AFTER weeks of anxious waiting, students across Fermanagh are preparing to receive their GCSE results.
Hundreds of students will make their way to their schools tomorrow (Thursday) to collect their results and for many, it will be a very nerve wrecking day. 
Students will be able to get their results from schools and colleges in the morning from around 10am, and teachers will be on hand to help discuss the future steps. 
Mark Henry, principal of St Michael’s College advised students not to panic as there are always options available. “We hope that everything goes well for the boys on Thursday. Undoubtedly, there will be one or two who will be disappointed. Talk to us and we will have a look through the options and take it from there. Take the advice and look carefully before making any decisions.”
Elizabeth Armstrong, principal at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School said it is an exciting but challenging time for students. “As you weigh up all the options on offer, it is important to consider these options carefully and to ensure that the course and subject options you choose will keep career pathways in which you are interested, open for the future. 
“Take advice from the staff in your school who know you well and who can offer guidance to support you as you take responsibility for your next step. Hopefully Thursday will bring good news for the students but if there is disappointment don’t forget there are always alternative options and sometimes what begins as a plan B turns out for the best in the long run. Stay positive.”
There is an exam help line for those who need some advice after getting your results. Call 02890261260 from 9am to 5pm everyday until August 30th.
