Preparing for results day

As results day approaches, here's what to expect once you receive your results.

Be prepared:

  • Have the phone numbers of your firm and insurance choice universities to hand. Visit our Clearing and Adjustment webpage for information on our Clearing hotline and vacancies.
  • Ensure you can get online and access UCAS Track. You might also want to find the Clearing and Adjustment pages - just in case. 
Preparing for results

Your next steps

On the day itself, you’re likely to find yourself in one of three situations:

You meet the conditions of your firm choice


Once your firm choice university has checked your results against your offer, you’ll hear officially through UCAS about your place.

You’ll then receive pre-registration information directly from the University.

You have not been accepted by your firm choice

However, you might meet those of your insurance choice. Well done!

You’ll hear through UCAS about being accepted by your insurance choice, and then you'll receive
pre-registration information directly from the University.

You don’t get the grades you expected

Firstly, check UCAS Track to see whether you have been accepted by any of your choices.

The course you're looking for might still have places available through Clearing and Adjustment. Stay positive and explore your options.
