This year is a year like no other and 2021 has presented huge challenges for the A level students getting their A level results on 10 August. Their entire sixth form experience has been disrupted by the covid pandemic and these uncertainties have demanded supreme amounts of resilience and flexibility as they tried to continue their A level studies in the face of adversity.

With this year’s use of TAGs (Teacher Assessed Grades) students may, however, be feeling a little less uncertain about their A level results than in ordinary years. Definitely for our students, the opportunity for continuous assessment and feedback on their performance has given them an approximate idea of how they have been doing and hopefully means that they feel a little less anxious now than if they were waiting for A level exam results. It is a real credit to each and every one of our students that they made such a huge effort over the summer term to produce portfolios of invigilated work that demonstrated their academic knowledge and skills.

Despite the differences this year, what is undoubtedly true is that A level results day 2021, on Tuesday 10 August, is a major life event for this year’s Year 13 cohort, just the same as every other year. This article is intended to advise our and other A level students about what happens on A level results day and the various options that are open to them depending on what the outcomes are.

Suffice to say, we are all here to help and wish you every success!

A Level Results Released at 8.30 am:

Students at our sixth form college will be emailed their A level results at 8.30 am. If students don’t want an email and would prefer to call us, or to ask a family member to call us, they should confirm this by emailing or calling Jason, our ever-competent Exams Officer.

Help with A level Results from 8.30 am:

Jason will be on hand to help with A level results and queries from 8.30 am. The phones are likely to be busy so please try to be considerate and don’t stay on the phone for an extended period about your individual queries. The best thing is to let us know what the problem is and then give us a chance to deal with the issue. We will then either call or email you back.

UCAS Track also Opens at 8.30 am:

After an embargo from Monday 9 August while university decisions are uploaded, UCAS Track will go live at 8.30 am. At this point students will be able to see if their first/ firm or insurance choices have been made ‘unconditional’. If either your firm or insurance universities are unconditional, congratulations you are IN!!!

If your university choices do not have a decision showing it may be that they are missing information or some of your results have not been transferred electronically. If so, you need first to call your chosen university, find out what is happening or what is missing, and then contact us so we know what we need to send over (for example Jason can send a statement of your results).
