A-LEVEL students across the district will discover their fate this week.

The anxious wait will be over on Thursday, as exam results are published.

A charity is stressing that it is there for young people if they need to speak to someone anonymously.

In the past year, volunteers from the NSPCC’s Childline have delivered 1,414 counselling sessions to children and young people worried about exams and exam results – an increase of nine per cent on the previous 12 months.

A spokesman said: “There is so much pressure – and perceived pressure – placed on young people to do well in education that expectations can become impossibly high.

“Whether your results are better than you had expected or if you didn’t do as well as you had hoped, the most important thing to remember is that there are always options available to you.

“Speak to your teachers, career advisors or university clearing helplines about what courses might be available to you. Speak to your friends and family and get their advice.”

Results received from Keighley-district schools will be published as we get them at keighleynews.co.uk and will appear in next week’s paper.
