Results day is less than 24 hours away for students in the North East and throughout the country.
Thousands will be finding out if they’ve gotten the grades to go to university or to head onto the next step of their career journey.
Here’s seven emotions all North East students might be feeling tonight and some tips to combat those emotions!
The night before is the hardest. You’ve waited for results day to arrive for ages and its nearly here. It’s normal to be nervous, but turn those nerves into a positive. Prepare for tomorrow by relaxing – maybe it’s reading a book, listening to music or spending time with family and friends. Make sure to get a good nights sleep too!
You may be feeling sad. You might be leaving family and friends behind to go to university or they may be leaving you. You might be feeling sad that you’re not going to university as you’ve decided to take a different path. It’s okay to be sad, but remember what you do next is your decision and if you want to change your mind then it’s okay. Take the time to wish people luck with their results – you might get a message back!
On the other hand you might be feeling excited about beginning the next part of your journey. You might have things all worked out in case things don’t go to plan.
If you don’t have a back up plan – don’t worry!
You know you’ve got this and you’re feeling really proud of yourself. Whatever happens tomorrow you know you’ve done your best and that’s all you can do. Stick with that feeling of confidence – it’ll help you tomorrow.
Entering the next chapter of your life can be a big deal. It’s a scary prospect. You’ll be finding out how you did in your exams and that might be frightening. You’ll have a lot of questions going through your head and many what if’s. Don’t worry – everything happens for a reason. If you get the grades you need, brilliant! If not, it’s not the end of the world (even though it may feel like it), you will get where you want to be, it might take a little longer that’s all.
You might be sick of hearing about results day. Thank goodness it’ll all be over tomorrow!
Good luck to everyone getting their results tomorrow!
