GCSE Results 2020: Information, Advice and Guidance
This has been an unusual year due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
If you do know what you’re doing in September, we would really appreciate you taking the time to let us know your plans by completing this online form. Please us this reference number: BPGRD20.
If you have not already, please start making plans for September. This will make the time after you get your results less stressful. You should think about what you would like to do if you get the results you’re expecting and what you could do as a backup plan.
There are plenty of places where you can find information on what is available. This web page will tell you where to look and who to contact, no matter where you live in Kent. We are currently working hard to bring you localised information and this will be available here soon.
Alternatively, all sixth form and college courses in Kent are promoted on the KentChoices website where you can apply directly online.
There are still a few weeks until the end of term to contact school sixth forms to discuss their courses and application process. The colleges will be open for you to contact them over the summer.
If neither school or college appeals to you, you can book an appointment with one of our friendly team to discuss apprenticeships and other training opportunities available.
For further information about apprenticeships, please visit ApprenticeKent.
