  • Then next, if you have been successful, put your qualification to good use.

  • Maybe use it as part of an application for university or a new job.

  • Alternatively, you could think about studying English to a higher level and getting a further qualification.

  • This might mean taking another exam though!

  • If you didn't pass your exams, don't panic! it's not the end of the world.

  • These are transferable skills!

  • Whatever your pass mark, go and use what you've learned.

  • You need to continue using English so you don't forget it.
