The Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) has set up a dedicated examinations helpline which offers advice and guidance for students who are expecting their A-Level and GCSE results over the next couple of weeks.

The helpline will be in operation from 9am until 5pm, starting Wednesday, August 14 to Friday, August 30. On A-Level results day, Thursday, August 15, the helpline will open from 7am. Anyone with queries regarding CCEA’s examination results can call 028 9026 1260, email, or log onto the CCEA website to access answers from the Frequently Asked Questions section.

CCEA Examinations Manager Michael Crossan commented: "A-Level and GCSE results days mark the end of two years hard work for students across Northern Ireland and also the beginning of new pathways for many. I congratulate all students receiving results and wish them every success."

Mr. Crossan added: "CCEA’s experienced staff will be on hand over the results period to assist with any query or concern you may have about your CCEA examination results. Please contact us if you need any guidance or assistance."

The FAQ section, available on the CCEA homepage, will also provide information on the most common issues around the period of the results.
