Derry Sinn Féin Education spokesperson Councillor Patricia Logue has wished all those who are due to receive exam results in the next few days the best of luck and urged all those who do not get the results they expected to explore other avenues and not to give up.
Cllr Patricia Logue said
“Hundreds of students in Derry are anxiously waiting to hear how they fared in their recent exams. With students having spent many months and even years putting hard work into preparing for the exams, there is a huge amount of pressure to deliver.
“Whether students get the results they hoped for or not, I would like to wish them all the best of luck for the future, as they move from one part of their life to another, which many see as a more exciting and challenging time.
To those students who do not get the results they had hoped for or were unable to secure a university place, I would like them to know that there are many other avenues for them to explore and that they shouldn’t give up. There are alternatives to the academic route and the time may now be right for them to focus on their strengths and talents.
