Students in Cornwall whose A Level results mean they are reconsidering their options have been reassured that there are plenty of choices available to them.
More than 1700 students at Truro and Penwith College are waiting to see if they can outdo last year’s incredible 99.5% pass rate, but help is at hand if their results are not what they expected.
“If your results are not what you wanted don’t be down-hearted, don’t panic and make sure you get some good advice,” Cheryl Mewton Director of Studies at the College explains.
“There are still plenty of excellent Higher Education opportunities available, whatever your grades, and many of these are now local opportunities, which can offer you a degree on your doorstep.”
Truro and Penwith College has organised a number of free advice days alongside a hotline number to provide help and guidance on options for those who need it.
On results day students can call into the Fal Building reception to talk about all manner of Higher Education options, as well as University-level courses available at Truro and Penwith College.
On Friday there will be an official A Level results Advice Day between 10am and 3pm, also in the Fal Building of the College.
Alternatively, students can ring the helpline on 01872 267061 to get advice over the phone or drop into the College’s main Reception at any time.
There are plenty of Higher Education options at Truro and Penwith College with fantastic degree and foundation degree courses across a wide range of subjects from Applied Psychology, Archaeology, Public Services and Biomedical Studies to Silversmithing and Jewellery, and English.
Class sizes are small and students get great one to one pastoral and academic support from their tutors.
