A level results day Published: Thursday, 18th August 2022

If you, your child or a young person you know has just received their results then make sure to have all the info you might need.

Oldham Council has been working with Positive Steps to put together some useful information that links to a variety of different services in Oldham, just in case you or someone you know needs a helping hand in taking the next step.

www.oldham.gov.uk/nextsteps has all you need to know about what options are available to you after getting your A-level results or after getting your GCSE results. No matter what the outcome help and guidance is there for you to make the best possible next step.

Councillor Mohon Ali, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said: “If you or someone you know is expecting their A-level or GCSE results over the next week then I want to say a massive well done for all your efforts.

“The past few years have been incredibly tough on young people. Having to learn and take exams throughout the Covid pandemic has made an already difficult time just that bit harder. So no matter what results you get just know that there are options available to you. Whether you want to continue your studies or look for advice on other work-related opportunities, there’s lots of support out there to help you on the right path.

“I’m incredibly proud of what our young people achieve in Oldham, especially under sometimes difficult circumstances. So congratulations and good luck with whatever you decide to do next.”

This year Ofqual planned to start to bring grades more in line with those from 2019, the last time exams were sat, and this has happened.

Locally pupils from Oldham 6th form College, North Chadderton, Crompton House and Blue Coat schools achieved A-levels.

Oldham’s children looked after and care leavers had some fantastic results with many getting what they need to get started at University, begin apprenticeships and employment.

Whilst grades are lower than those awarded by teacher assessment in 2021, the comparison between 2019 and 2022 shows increases for Oldham pupils at A*- A by 8%, A*- C by 5.7% and A*- E by 0.3%.
