A-Level Results & What To Do Next?
A-Level Results: Are you ready?
If you’ve just received your A-level results, there’s a whole bunch of questions which you should be ready to answer:
What kind of job do you want to do later?
What studies do you need to do to get that job?
Which Universities offer the courses best suited for those studies, and for you?
Do you have the budget to afford going overseas?
The list can go on and on, and that’s ok, this is an important decision and you sh0uld be as certain of your final decision as you could be for anything else in your life.
What you need to do now
Firstly, if you’re stressed out because you think your results are too low, take a step back, and ponder on this:
Google doesn’t care about hiring top college graduates
One of the biggest and most successful companies in the world isn’t looking at just your grades, and isn’t looking at the name of the university.
And a lot of others are starting to do the same.
What this should tell you is that even if you don’t get into your dream university, nothing is lost.
The most important is that you have a great experience; you’ll meet a lot of people and learn as much as you can, in and out of university life.
Next is to do as much research as you can into where you think you’re going to be going.
You might’ve already looked at the grade requirements, and made decisions based on rankings or recommendations,
But it might not be relevant to you.
So here’s a quick infographic which should give you a good idea on where to get started, but of course, the best solution would be to do your own research.
