A-Level Results Day: What's Next | CityBlock

The fateful day is finally upon us. All that hard work that you’ve been putting in over the past couple of years has come to an end, and it’s time to face the music. So, now that you’re up bright and early, waiting to pick up your results, you’re probably thinking about all the options ahead of you. Remember, no matter you’re results, you have A TONNE of options!

Yippee! I Got Exactly What I Needed

Congratulations! We knew you could do it, aren’t you just the cat’s pyjamas! You are one of the lucky ones who can sit back and relax today – you got the results you needed for your 1st choice university and they’ve officially accepted your application.

Results Day

Put your feet up, open a bottle of fizz and congratulate yourself for all that hard work you put in over the past 2 years!

I Don’t Know How I Did it, But I Got Better Grades Than I Needed!

Well done you! You did even better than expected and we are so proud! Well, you have a choice to make – your 1st choice university is a great pick, but you now have the option of contacting universities that you once thought were out of your reach. You’ll need to visit the UCAS Adjustment service where you can search for other courses with higher entry requirements.

In the meantime, put your feet up, open a bottle of fizz and congratulate yourself for all that hard work you put in over the past 2 years!

I’ve Not Got the Results I Was Hoping For

Firstly, well done, seriously; even if you didn’t get the results you were hoping for, you made it through two years of A-Levels study, and we know just as well as you do, that’s not easy! You’ve made it to the other side, and rather than getting down on yourself for not getting the results you wanted, now’s the time to get moving. There are PLENTY of alternative options out there. UCAS Clearing allows you to search for courses that are yet to be filled. You are likely to be able to find the course you were hoping for at a different university.

Check out the below video about clearing from The University of Cumbria:

 

Of course, this is a great time to think about all your options – if you come to the conclusion that university isn’t for you, that’s fine! There are plenty of other options out there like apprenticeships and vocational college courses.

In the meantime, put your feet up, open a bottle of fizz and congratulate yourself for all that hard work you put in over the past 2 years!
