It’s A-Level Results Day: What’s next? Part I
For those of you collecting your results, A-Level Results Day will probably be one of the most nerve-wracking days of your academic career; the culmination of 14 years’ study and three years of seemingly endless exams.
Compared with the structure of exam season, Results Day can seem chaotic. Every year there are rushed telephone calls to friends to find out what time school opens, last-minute searches for Ucas login details, and so on. The focus on collecting that all-important envelope means little thought is given to what happens afterwards.
To help you plan your day, we have put together a guide to A-level Results Day.
What will you need?
· Ucas Track login details
· Telegraph Clearing app on iPhone or Android
· Mobile phone
· Contact details for your university
· Pen and paper
· Camera (to take your Results Day selfie)
The day outlined
8am – Track goes live
You’ll be able to see your university confirmation. Your marks won’t show on Ucas, so, if you haven’t already, you will need to pick these up at your school or college. Ucas' social media team will be around from 6am and the contact centre opens at 7.30am for enquiries.
8am onwards – Pick up your results
You will have to check with your school to find out what time they open to collect your grades. Many schools will have this listed on their websites. If you got your grades, go and celebrate; if you didn’t, don’t panic, there are other options.
Met your grades? Track will update to say you have been accepted into either your firm or insurance choice university and you will be able to view your confirmation letter in Track. Make sure you read this, as it may contain information from your university about what to do next.
Also, remember to double check all your contact details, so any information the university sends you will go to the right place.
If you have your student finance in place, there is now nothing left to do except celebrate and prepare for the big move.
