Advice for results day

Results day can be a stressful time for young people.

There are lots of ways to get support if you don’t get the results you had hoped.

You can speak to your teachers at school or college to find out how they can support you and what options are open to you now. Your ‘plan B’ might be choosing a different course or place of study, or taking time out and doing the exams at a later date.

If your results make you feel low and you would like support for your emotional wellbeing, there are a number of online services that can help:

Tellmi is a safe, anonymous app where you can talk about absolutely anything. From anxiety to autism, dating to depression, or self-harm to self-esteem, sharing your experiences with an online community helps you to feel better. You can visit the Tellmi website or download the app from your phone’s app store.

YoungMinds is an online service providing support to young people and parents.

You can also text your school nurse for advice and support by using the ChatHealth texting service.

Remember your GP is available for extra help and support if you are still struggling and finding it hard to cope.
