The arrival of A level results, out today (15th August) can herald a particularly stressful time for both students and parents alike.
It isn’t always a case of lower than expected grades that can lead to consternation as to what to do next, often better than expected grades pose an equally difficult conundrum.
Finding the right solution requires some fast thinking and an in depth look at what might be possible for the start of the next academic year. This is something that many find hard to do given the complexities of dealing with the university UCAS clearing system. Expert help is also on hand for checking the availability of suitable places for re-sits.
Independent advice regarding your education options
Gabbitas’ strength lies in providing independent, unbiased advice with the student at the core of the discussions – no one solution fits all. Tailored made professional advice to help students who miss their firm and ‘insurance’ offers, those wanting to upgrade or change their minds about their choices, have not had any offers or have missed the UCAS deadlines entirely!
Re-takes, gap years, IB, BTEC and more
The consultants will review the choices often made well in advance of the results, look at new course options, and help, if necessary, in withdrawing from the UCAS process to do re-takes or to take a gap year. The same level of help is available to GCSE students who do not get the grades for their chosen places for A level studies or who want to look at alternative options for their future, such as apprenticeship schemes International Baccalaureate or BTEC.
