THE Exam Results Helpline will be open from 8am today (Thursday) to give advice and support to students and their parents picking up GCSE results.

Career advisers are ready to provide impartial guidance to students unsure what to do next. Advice can be given on subject choices at sixth-form as well as information on other options for students including colleges and apprenticeships in the area.

Anyone getting their results today who wants to speak to someone impartially and confidentially can call 0808-100-8000 or find the Exam Results Helpline on Twitter and Facebook.
