Tomorrow is A-level Result's Day (August 14th) and we want to check that you're prepared for all eventualities. After months of hard work and revision, everything has been building up to this moment.
It's arguably one of the most pivotal days in your academic career; but the truth this, it isn't the end of the world if you don't get the grades you expected. To help you through tomorrow, here's our quick guide to surviving results day.
First and foremost, have everything you need for the morning. Track goes live at 8am, so be sure to have your Track login details at the ready. Have all the contact details you might need, including your university and clearing. Also check that your contact details are correct in case anybody needs to get in touch with you. It's important that you are available on results day as UCAS can’t discuss your application with anyone else (unless this has been previously confirmed).
So what next? Students can usually pick up their results from their school or college. If you've got the grades you wanted, great; Track will update your application to confirm whether you have been accepted by your firm or insurance choice university. Make sure you read your confirmation letter carefully to know the steps you need to take next. If you didn't receive the results you were hoping for; don’t panic. There are alternatives.
No matter what your results may be, this is just the beginning. It’s an exciting step in your career, whatever path you choose. So don’t worry about results day – get excited!
