A-Level Results Day 2021: What Are Your Next Steps?
If you’re awaiting your results, or have just received your grades, we are here to guide you through the day ahead and discuss your next steps after A-Levels.
When is A-Level Results Day 2021?
This year, A-Level Results Day takes place on Tuesday 10th August.
How are A-Level Results calculated?
In 2021, students’ grades are based on teacher assessments after it was announced that exams would again be cancelled for this year.
You should already be aware of what evidence your school or college have chosen to determine your grades – this could be mock exams, homework, coursework, or other assignments.
What can you do if your A-Level Results aren’t what you hoped for?
If you discover that your grades are not what you were anticipating, it’s completely ok to feel disappointed and uncertain about your future.
A-Level Results Day can come with a lot of pressure – from family members, friends and more commonly, ourselves.
The most important thing to remember is not to panic. The results you have received will not define how you move forward with your future – there are a lot of options available for you to explore, and your future is still yours to mould into whatever path you choose.
Kickstart your career with an apprenticeship
There will have been many stresses surrounding the last year for you, not even to mention the global pandemic. The uncertainty of the pandemic and its long lasting effects that the ‘new normal’ has had, has left many people unsure of the future of on-campus university experiences. Many young people are either putting university on hold or even cancelling their place all together and looking to go straight into the workplace by considering an apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships are a great option for anyone looking to get a head-start in their career. They combine technical and industry recognised skills that employers require with the professional working experience they love to see on a CV.
With an apprenticeship, you’ll work towards a recognised qualification in a specialist subject of your choice. You will also build on the skills that can’t be measured through an exam or university essay – such as teamwork, communication, and confidence (all while getting paid we might add!)
With an apprenticeship, you’ll be working with an amazing employer in a real job opportunity; with all the training and support you need to get your career up and running.
An apprenticeship opens up many doors. Some choose to go to university after completing their programme – armed with the newly developed experience that gives them the edge in the graduate jobs market, whilst others choose to progress their learning further whilst working full time in the job that they are now fully trained in and develop a long lasting career!
