A Level Results Day

It’s the night before the big day, Thursday 16th August  – AS and A2 Level results day. Last year we blogged about what to do if things don’t go according to plan or you don’t get the grades you expected.

Some of you might be in a position to need the opposite advice – what do you do if you grades are better than you expected? It sounds like a great position to be in (and it’s one our students who work with tutors find themselves in) but what should your next steps be?

–          Before we get into the serious stuff give yourself a massive pat on the back. You just exceeded all expectations and you should be very proud.

–          Now down to the nitty gritty. If you have a firm place at university but have exceeded the grades needed then you can use the UCAS Adjustment service.  This allows you to reconsider what you want to study and where you want to study it. You can apply for adjustment but still keep your original offer.

–          If you now have excellent grades but there are no places at the university or on the course you want then consider taking a year off (working or travelling is a great life experience) and then reapplying for a place next year.
