GCSE results day in the West

24 August 2010, 06:00

The wait is over for GCSE students.

The results are in, but did you got the grades to get into college or six-form?

It you haven't done as well as you had hoped, there is plenty of advice out there.

Cheltenham based clearing service UCAS is housing the National Exams helpline, you can contact them on 08 08 100 8000.

The other option is Connexions, who have offices across the West.

They can help 13 to 19 year olds (up to 25 for those with a learning difficulty or disability) with information, advice and guidance on what to do next.
