You've got your grades: now what? Find out what you need to do (and when), once your results are in the bag

If you’re going to uni from school or college, you’ll probably need to wait for your results before you can confirm your uni place.

This year, you get your AS, A Level or BTEC results on Thursday 15 August 2024.

How we get your results

You won’t be the only person excited about your results come results day – we’ll also be waiting to find out how well you’ve done.

UCAS sends us results for most types of qualifications as soon as they’re available. So you usually don’t have to do anything when you get your results if you applied through UCAS.

If you do need to send us your results because you applied to us directly or UCAS can’t send them to us, please email copies to For courses that start in the autumn, you’ll need to send us your results before the course start date and we'll confirm your place.

If you get the results you need

If we’re your firm (first) choice uni and you got the results you need, well done! We’ll send you a confirmation email, which contains all the information you need to join us. You can then start planning your arrival.

If we’re your insurance (back up) choice and you didn’t get into your firm (first) choice uni, we’ll automatically become your firm choice if you get the results you need to come here.

If you didn’t get the results you need

We will keep people updated with offers via email on Results Day. Save yourself a phone call and regularly check your emails throughout the day!

If we’re your firm (first) choice uni and you didn’t get the results you need, don’t worry – we’ll review your application again and may still offer you a place on your chosen course.

If we can’t give you a place on your chosen course, we may offer a place on an alternative course. This won’t always be related to the course you applied for. But it will be based on a subject area you’ve studied before.

If you applied through UCAS, you can accept or decline your alternative course offer on . If you applied to us directly, contact us to let us know your decision.

If you decline an offer of an alternative course and you applied through UCAS, you’ll either be accepted onto your insurance choice or entered into Clearing.
