It’s A-Level Results Day - What’s next Part II

It’s A-Level Results Day: What’s next? Part II

What can I expect from my A-Level Results?

What if you’ve narrowly missed your grades?

Speak to your university — they may still accept you. You might even be offered an alternative course by the university, which you will need to accept or decline in Ucas Track. If not, check your status on Track to find out if you are eligible for Clearing.

What if you do better than expected?

You may consider applying through Adjustment, which gives you the opportunity to ‘trade up’ to a better university or course without losing your current offer.

Don’t want to accept the place you have been offered?

You will have to call the university who made you the offer and ask to be ‘released’. This can take up to ten days and there is no going back, so make sure you are 100 per cent sure before making the call.

Want to defer your offer until next year?

Again, you will have to call the university and ask if this is possible. Some universities will agree and some won’t. It is worth having a good reason in place to support your decision. Maybe you plan to take a gap year that will support your studies, or maybe you plan to get work experience in your chosen field. Either way, call the admissions office to talk it through - they won't retract their offer to you simply for enquiring.

On the day (a recap):

8am – Ucas Track goes live

Morning – Pick up results from school

Morning – Check Track for confirmation of university place

Morning – Narrowly missed your grades? Call your university to discuss

Morning – Entered into Clearing? Start your search online
