A-level Results Day

Have everything ready

Here at Manara Education we know results day can be stressful, so make sure you know how it works and what to expect. 

  •  Have your UCAS Track sign in details handy and update your contact details if you need to.
  •  Make sure you’re available on results day, because UCAS can’t speak to anyone else about your application details unless you give them nominated access to speak on your behalf.
  •  Check how your exam results get to your universities/colleges– most come directly to UCAS from the awarding organisations, and they send them on to your choices. But if not, you just send your exam results to your universities or colleges yourself.

What happens

Hopefully you’ll get the exam grades you need, but if you just miss out, the university or college might accept you anyway.

  •  You might get a place on either your firm or insurance choice, depending how well your exams go.
  •  You might be offered an alternative by the university/college – a ‘changed course offer’ (which you’ll need to accept or decline).
  •  You might not get a place, but you can search through UCAS Clearing service to see what courses still have vacancies.

Other options

If you do better than expected…
  •  If you had a conditional firm offer you met and exceeded, you might be curious about courses with higher entry requirements.
  •  If so, you can see what’s available in UCAS Adjustment service.
If things don’t go to plan…
  •  Find info about exam reviews and appeals – you’ll need to try to arrange the review as quickly as possible, and keep in touch with your university or college to keep them up-to-date.
  •  Look for course vacancies in UCAS Clearing service, or look into other options– like a gap year, work or an apprenticeship – either instead of higher education, or just while you reapply for next year.
  •  Give us a call at Manara Education on 0204 538 7525 and speak to one of our experts about your options. 

Whatever happens try and remain calm and focus on getting into a university and course you would enjoy. 

Here at Manara Education we believe that you must have passion for your course at university otherwise it will be a very tough 3 – 5 years.

Goodluck !!!
