CCEA Examinations Manager Michael Crossan commented: “A-Level and GCSE results days are the culmination of two years hard work for students across Northern Ireland. They also mark the beginning of new journeys and pathways for many, which can be both exciting and challenging.

“CCEA’s experienced staff will be available 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.

“Finally, I wish everyone receiving their results on 16 and 23 August every success on the next stage of your journey and into the future.

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

The Helpline number: 028 9026 1260 opening hours are : 9am – 5pm on weekdays (Wed 15 Aug – Wed 29 Aug)

The helpline will open at 7am on 16 August for A Level results.

Students will receive their GCE A/AS results on Thursday 16 August from their school/college.
