Feeling nervous about getting your A-Level results is completely normal. It’s both the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter… an exciting time which can lead to a lot of changes in your life. For some, the next adventure might be university, and if your offers are conditional on results, you’ll know where you’re going to be studying this time next week.
‘Track’ opens at 8am on Thursday 16th August. This is UCAS’s tool which confirms if you’ve got a place at your chosen uni. Hopefully you’ll get the grades you need and can spend the rest of the day celebrating, but if things don’t go to plan try not to worry too much; there are lots of options and support available. So breathe, take a step back and consider the alternatives:
- 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’s Clearing service to see what courses still have vacancies.
- 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 into other options – like a gap year, work or an apprenticeship – either instead of higher education, or just while you reapply for next year.
