Exam results are a nerve-racking event at the best of times with so much pressure to get the right grades so you can progress onto the next stage of your life. But this year has been a whole new ball game.

The government had struggled to find a fair system to assess students after exams were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s safe to say it caused uproar. Hopefully recent announcements will help bring both clarity and certainty.

As you digest, hopefully fairer, results things can still seem confusing, and you may be unsure of your options. Don’t worry, the IMI is here to support you and help you succeed.
