As tens of thousands of students sit nervously anticipating their A-Level results worried that they may not get the results they need to get into the University of their choice, many parents will be just as tense.

So how worried are you? Are you wondering what will happen if your child doesnt get their needed and desired grades? Do you know what you can do to help if they dont get on the course they wanted to or if they dont get their first choice University?
