Good Luck on A-Level Results Day!

The dreaded wait is finally over - the whole summer has been filled with 'what if's' and finally, they will be answered.

In the 2017-2018 academic year, over 733,000 students took their A-Levels. Over 77% of them achieved between A* - C grades, so chances are - you've done enough to get into the University of your choice!

But if you didn't manage to get the grades that you needed, then fear not - it's not the end of the world.

Let's not forget that A-Levels are not the be all and end all. In a world completely full of pressure, it is difficult to remember that there are other options available to you. Allow yourself some time and space to process the news and consider your next steps.

If you did worse than expected, then don't panic - you may still able to get into University via a UCAS service called 'clearing'. This is where Universities advertise any places they still have available for the course. You can also see if there are any places left at other Uni's, or consider a different course with a lower grade criteria.

If you are set on one University - you can also consider getting in touch with their admissions desk directly and asking if they would still consider you. If you have only slipped a grade or two - they may still take you.

It is also worth thinking about taking a year out and re-sitting exams again next year. There is also the option of pursuing an apprenticeship or doing vocational training.

No matter how you did in your exams - we congratulate you! To get to this point is a great achievement; one you should be very proud of!

Good luck to all of you, we're rooting for you.
