County students set to collect their A-Level results today

Students across Kent will receive the results of their post-16 qualifications, including A-levels, AS-levels and T-levels, today.

Schools and colleges have let pupils know how to collect their results. In most cases, students will be able to collect them from their school or college while teachers will be on hand to provide advice and support if necessary.

This year will see a return to pre-pandemic grading arrangements, as the measures put in place to recognise the disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic are lifted. Senior examiners have set boundaries to make sure that overall national results are similar to those of 2019. This means that a student will be just as likely to achieve a particular grade this year as they would have been before the pandemic.

Good luck to all students who find out their exam results today

Kent County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, Rory Love, said: “Good luck to all students who find out their exam results today.

“They have put in a lot of hard work over the past two years and I wish them the best in whatever they decide to do next.

“Having different options available to all young people when they finish school is incredibly important, and we are working with the post-16 sector to make a difference in this area through our Pathways for All programme.”

Kent County Council’s Director of Education, Christine McInnes, said: “I want to thank our school and college leaders, and their teaching and support staff, who each year pull out all the stops to make sure students are prepared to take their exams.

“I also want to congratulate students for all their hard work over the past two years and wish them good luck as they plan their next steps.”

Young people with special educational needs and disabilities who are making decisions about their next steps can find a wealth of useful information and advice on our SEND Information Hub.

If students do not achieve the results they were hoping for, there is plenty of help and support available to help them find the right path for them. Students can speak to their schools as staff will be able to discuss the various options available to them.

Alternatively, the National Careers Service has lots of useful information about options on their website, or you can call their exam results helpline on 0800 100 900.
