Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has urged young people receiving their A-Level and AS-Level results to follow their passion when fulfilling their educational or career path.
Speaking on A-Level results day, the Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson said:
“I want to wish everyone receiving their A-Level and AS-Level results every success and congratulate students on their efforts.
“I would also like to reassure those who may have been disappointed by their results that support and guidance is available as they look at their options and plan their next move.
“These days young people face a lot of pressure when choosing a path for the future. The advice I would give those receiving results today is to follow your passion.
“Exam results steadily improve year on year, and credit must be paid to the students, their teachers and public sector staff for their efforts in achieving this in a time of relentless Tory austerity and cuts to school budgets.
“Our society prospers through the work of our teachers, carers and parents, and today is a day to celebrate their role in educating and supporting young people in what can be a challenging time in their lives.”
