Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson Karen Mullan MLA has congratulated all students across the north who have received their GCSE examinations results .
Karen Mullan said:
“I would like to congratulate all those students getting their GCSE results.
“I believe they are the result of the hard work and dedication. They are also a credit to the professionalism and commitment of teachers and parents.
“I would like to commend the three successive Sinn Féin Education Ministers for their work in developing our education system.
“If you did not achieve the grades you wanted, there are other options out there. I would urge you to explore these by talking to your teachers and careers advisers.
“There is a lot of pressure on young people now a-days and I would tell them follow your heart, follow your passion.
I wish you all every success for the future, whether you decide to go on to study A-Levels, take up a new course, go into training or employment.”
