Lots of Ballymena students will be receiving exam results from this week on. This is an exciting time but it can also be disappointing. It is important to remember that there are lots of options to explore and that all is not lost.
1/ Talk to your parents – Disappointing your parents is not a good feeling, but please remember that they want to help you. Tell your parents your results as soon as you can – that means you won’t be adding pressure onto yourself thinking about how they are going to react. At the end of the day your parents want to support you at this time and the more quickly you involve them the better. Get the difficult bit out of the way and then you can move on
2/ Speak to your teachers – When you get your results if you are disappointed or confused you should be able to get in touch with your school. Teachers are there to help you sort out your options. You may be thinking the worst but you won’t be able to confirm if you have to leave school, or resit until you actually speak to someone.
3/ Consider your options – If your exams did not go well then there is a chance that school might not be the place for you. We know that it is scary and upsetting to leave all your friends behind and go somewhere else but it might be the new beginning that you need. Here are some of your options:

You have lots of options and it is important to chose what is best for you – don’t just go with the crowd or follow your friends. This is your opportunity to explore a new future.
