Thousands of Hampshire students set to receive their exam results today

Hampshire County Council is congratulating all of the students receiving their GCSE and other level 2 qualification results today, and urging everyone who isn’t sure what to do next, to speak to Hampshire Futures, the County Council’s careers advice team for support

Councillor Steve Forster, the County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “All the Year 11 students should be really proud of themselves today, whatever their results, after working hard towards their qualifications.

“I’d also like to thank the parents and carers, and our teachers and tutors for all the support they have given to pupils throughout their courses and in preparation for their exams.

“For many of our young people, today is a day of celebration as they have achieved the grades needed to move into their chosen next stage of education or training. For some pupils however, we know it can be a difficult time, particularly if there is uncertainty about next steps, or they have received results that are lower than expected or hoped for. Our Hampshire Futures’ team can offer full careers support, advice and guidance for anyone who needs it after today’s results.”

The Hampshire Futures exam results service will be open from 9am to 3pm on 24 and 25 August with the friendly team of qualified careers advisers on hand to help. Telephone: 03707 796 122, or email [email protected].

Advice and information on options including applying for college, apprenticeship choices, what to do when considering next steps, and a wide range of other careers information, can also be found on the Hampshire Futures website.

The site includes links to useful resources and other websites, as well as short videos on a range of careers advice issues, including information for young people with special educational needs, on further education and moving into the workforce.

Students who may be feeling uncertain, anxious or stressed about the future as they prepare to move on to college, employment or other training can also find details of a range of support to look after their wellbeing on the Hampshire Futures site. For 24/7 access to mental health support, text ‘SHOUT’ to 85258 or call Childline on 0800 1111.

The County Council expects to have the full picture of GCSE and other level 2 qualification outcomes in early 2024 when this data is first released by the Department for Education.
