It’s exam results time again and many young people across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough will be receiving their GCSE, B-Tec and A-Level exam results. Many will have struggled through their exams with the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns interrupting their school learning.
This year we have produced a dedicated page on our local mental health information website www.Keep-Your-Head.com. The page is aimed at young people receiving their exam results, and is packed full of advice, support and information for young people during this challenging time in their lives.
Not all young people will receive the exam results they hoped for, but let’s remind those young people we care for, they should be proud of how hard they’ve worked whatever their result. Journeys in life frequently change course and things don't always go to plan, but to remember today is just the beginning of an exciting journey, whatever the route.
