Support After Results

Connexions, the Cambridgeshire advice service for young people, is holding a number of drop-in sessions for young people following the publication of A Level and GCSE results.

Nationally, the A Level pass rate has risen for the 28th year in a row.

However, there are concerns that many students may miss out on a place at university due to budget cuts and tougher competition.

Advisors will also be able to give advice following the publication of GCSE results later this week.

For students and parents still pondering their next move, Connexions is running a series of drop in advice sessions between 1:30pm and 4:30pm every day next week.

Connexions has centres at the following locations in Cambridgeshire:

  • Cambridge Central Library
  • Ely Library
  • Huntingdon - St Benedict's Court
  • March - The Centre, City Road
  • St Neots Library
  • Wisbech - Stermyn Street


Advice and information can also be given via the Connexions phone line, which is 0808 0013 219.

Cambridge Regional College is also holding two post-results advice days, on the 27 and 31 August, to offer students guidance in exploring all the different options available to them.
