• Where can students go for advice:-

a) If you need advice regarding the grade you got in your exam and understanding how you performed then please speak to you teacher.

b) If it is general advice regarding your overall grades and university application then talk to your personal tutor.

c) If you are needing to find a new course in your second year, or have not passed one of your progression exams and do not wish to do the re-sit exam to be able to progress into the A2 year of that course, then go to Student Services to book an appointment with your Guidance Manager.
