CCEA Examinations Manager Michael Crossan commented:

"We at CCEA are aware that results day is the culmination of many hours of hard work and a time of anxious anticipation for students. To assist students, parents and teachers with any queries or concerns, the CCEA results helpline is available with experienced staff on hand. The service can be accessed via email or telephone.

In addition to the Helpline, the Frequently Asked Questions section contains useful information on interpreting results, and the post result services that are available.

I would like to congratulate all the students who completed examinations this summer. I wish them every success with their future plans, whether they chose to go onto further study or employment."
