SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan has congratulated students in Derry on receiving their A-level results today
He said: “I wish all A-level students in Derry every success in their future endeavours.
“I congratulate every one of them on their individual achievements – each of whom has made an important step in their lifelong learning journey.
“It is heartening that A-level students here are continuing to perform extremely well – an achievement which is contributed to by a variety of schools of different types in Derry – secondary, grammar and our regional college of further education.
“Results day is not an easy time for any student and some may find that their grades unfortunately do not match their expectations. Indeed, it is important to note that university is not the only option.
“I would therefore encourage students not make any hasty decisions – and contact their careers advisors to explore the many possibilities still open to them.”
