Wait is almost over for A-levels

Hundreds of students across Ilkeston and the surrounding area find out how well they have done in their A-levels tomorrow (Thursday).

Students should not feel too down-hearted if things haven’t gone to plan, Derbyshire County Council has said.

Cllr Jim Coyle, deputy cabinet member for children and young people, said there are advisors on hand at Connexion centres across the county, including in Bath Street, Ilkeston and Tamworth Road, Long Eaton.

“This is a big day as these results are the product of two years of hard work,” he said.

“For many students the grades they get will determine what they do next and this can lead to high levels of anxiety.

“We want to reassure everyone that no matter what the result may be, there is help available for them.”

There is also a information about what to do next available from school and county careers advisors and apprenticeships on offer via www.apprenticeships.org.uk or atone of the Derbyshire Skills festivals including at Pride Park Derby on Wednesday September 18 from 3.30pm and 8pm.

We will be updating our website as results come in today from Ormiston Ilkeston Academy, Kirk Hallam Community, Technology and Sports College, Friesland School, George Spencer Academy, Heanor Gate School, Trent College, Long Eaton School and Wilsthorpe School,
