Don’t Stress About Exam Results 27/07/2021

We know it’s pretty stressful waiting on your exam results. As much as you might not think it, we’ve all been there, we promise you. We know that us telling you not to stress won’t stop you, it’s an anxious time, on top of everything at the moment.

So if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, keep on reading. 

Things to remember:

  • Keep in mind that exam results do not define who you are. You might be the comedian in the family, the person your friends come to for life advice, or something else.
  • Remember your strengths. You have so many skills and qualities.
  • Make a list of all the things you want from life which don’t involve exams. This can help you realise that exams are only a small part of the picture.
  • You can take them again. Not only do KC run English and maths GCSE’s, but we’ll be talking to your school if you want to resit a GCSE subject we don’t do.
  • Never forget that your health and happiness is worth looking after.

If you don't get the results you were after:

If you don’t get the grades you want, it can feel devastating. But it really isn’t the end of the world and it happens to lots of people, for all sorts of reasons.

  • Don’t panic, take a moment to breathe.
  • Speak to people who will help you stay calm and who you can talk to about how you’re feeling.
  • Explore your options properly. Your school can help, so can we, we have our CAREERS COACH on our website which you can use; it helps you find the right sort of path for you, lets you know about salaries, what’s available in the local areas and the sort of courses you need to do to reach your goal!
  • Remember you don’t need to make any snap decisions in the heat of the moment.

There's still room:

We still have room on some of our KC Courses for this September, so if life is taking you down a different path to the one you first thought, take a look at our FULL TIME qualifications and see if one is the right fit for you!

Here at KC, we specialise in Vocational Qualifications, which combine practical learning alongside theory; so they’re perfect if you have a more hands-on approach to learning.

So,  rather than choosing three subject areas as you would with A-Levels, vocational courses allow you to specialise in one area; this means that you will get devoted time, expertise and industry knowledge on that one subject that sparks your interest; giving you the ultimate edge when it comes to seeking employment. 

Despite what you may have heard, vocational courses are a sure fire way to get into University! Think about it, instead of spending two years on three separate subjects, you spend two to three years concentrating on one specialism, which gives your skills a huge edge compared to someone who has done A-Levels. All of our Level 3 qualifications carry UCAS points! (KC run HND and Degree level courses, so if that’s the route you’d decide to take, we’ve got you!)
