Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

August can be a nervous time for many young people as over the next few weeks exam results begin to be sent out. I’d be really interested in hearing how people feel about waiting for results and whether you have any worries about the future.

I read every letter, but I can only respond to a few. I can’t respond to personal email addresses or phone numbers so please don’t include those.

Take care,
Sam
