Students all over Louth have woken up today (Thursday) feeling the nerves, hoping they’ve got those all important A-level results needed so they can move onto the next chapter in their lives.
The Louth Leader team has been out and about this morning to King Edward VI Grammar School, Monks Dyke Tennyson College and Cordeaux Academy to see many happy faces beaming about the good results they received.
Technology seems to make the process easier as students can wake up, log online and find out instantly whether they have been accepted to their chosen universities.
But the nerves are still there, it’s one thing seeing the words offer and accepted on a computer screen, but it doesn’t tell the students what results they have got in each of their A-level subjects.
As many of us know, the youngsters head up to school to find that one sheet of paper which tells them whether or not their two years of hard work and studying has paid off.
For others, it’s just a relief that they have got into university or a quick dash to the computer again to sort out their clearing options of which university they could head to next, not having got their initial choice of study.
Some of the children are also off on gaps years travelling or working to save money as well as those who are looking into apprenticeships.
Here at The Leader we have all the photos, interviews and results from this year’s students.
So all that’s left for us to say is....Congratulations.
Keep up to date with the Leader for the results break-down later on today when we have the full details.
