It’s one of the most nerve-racking, sweat inducing moments – waking up to the dreaded brown envelope…
Over the last two weeks nervous learners have been opening up their exam results. For many there will be screams of delight and sighs of relief, however for some it is a period of uncertainty and worry of where the next stage in education or employment will be.
We’ve all been there – put the work in and maybe not performed out best on the day due to the pressure of the exam-room, and suddenly in a seemingly heart-stopping moment all that hard work seems like it was time wasted.
But do not feel that way, because Belfast Met can help you with your next step…
