Taking state exams can be a stressful experience. All that study, two weeks of exams and then the big wait for results. Around this time some big decisions are made about your future too. This of course can cause distress. What if you are not sure? What if you don’t want to decide yet? What if you want to go to college to do a certain course but didn’t get offered a place? What if you secured the option you wanted but are just a bit scared about future changes- leaving your old routine, maybe your friends, family for a new routine? HeadsUp wants to ease this transition for you. We want to try to provide answers to your worries and concerns by scheduling a webcast with a number of different experts who may be able to help you with your queries. These experts include:
