A Level Results Day 2023 – What will the day be like?
It’s finally right around the corner; A level results day for this year will be Thursday 17th August. You may be feeling many emotions right about now. But that is normal and you are not alone.
Find out how results day goes so you can prepare yourself before the day.
How will I find out if I’ve got my place at uni?
From 8am you will be able to log on to UCAS Track and find out if you’ve been accepted to your university of choice. Be patient as the system may be very busy around this time. Thousands of students from around the UK try to login to see their results.
Before Results Day, it would be beneficial check with your school/college that your results are being sent direct to UCAS, if not, you’ll need to send them directly to your university on results day.
You need to remember that UCAS Track doesn’t show your exact results. But will only show your university application status. The university will receive your results a few days before and update your offer, but you won’t see that until Track is updated on the 17th.
Track is ‘frozen’ in the days leading up to A-level results day. This means you won’t be able to make any changes to your application during this time. If you need to make any changes you will need to contact UCAS directly.
What happens at 8am?
At 8am and not a minute before, Track will go live and will show the decisions made by your chosen university. It’s a good idea to have your Track log in details ready, (you don’t want to be searching the house for those come 8am!), and when you log in check that your contact details are correct. When you move through Track, you’ll see your choice(s) have been updated. And in simple terms will show as:
Unconditional – Your place at the university and on the course has been confirmed. This may be your firm or insurance offer, or both.
Unconditional Changed Course – This means that you don’t have the necessary grades for your offer, but the university has proposed a similar course requiring lower grades.
The university may also offer an alternative start date, such as deferred entry. In general, you have five days to decide if you want to accept this offer. This allows you to discuss the opportunity with the university.
Unsuccessful – This means that unfortunately you haven’t been accepted by your choice(s). However, this means that you’re now eligible to enter university through Clearing.
In the first two examples, congratulations, you’ve secured a place at your chosen university! If you’re entering Clearing don’t worry, thousands do it every year and in some cases, students even choose to enter university through the Clearing process. Find out about Clearing here.
