I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate pupils across Wrexham who have received their grades today. I hope your results support your chosen path, be that to university, apprenticeships or the world of work.
It has been an incredibly challenging time for our young people, and I’m incredibly proud of all of your hard work.
Many students in Wales have been let down by the Welsh system.
I’m pleased to see that the Welsh Government has listened to pupils concerns and have implemented a system which won’t disrupt their futures.
This will come as a relief to many across Wrexham.
If you haven’t secured the grades you were hoping for, there is a wealth of resources available.
If your results aren’t as expected your first step is to talk to your school or college about all possible options.

Going to university?
Universities are aware of the impact that COVID-19 has had on your education, and are committed to being more flexible. If you didn't get the grades you expected, contact the Universities you hold offers with.
Universities in England will be holding places for those appealing their grades. There has been no confirmation on Welsh Universities holding places, it is up to each individual university. The advice is to contact the University directly. If you'd like to appeal your grade, contact your school/collage directly.
If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
