A Level / BTEC Results Day

A-Level and BTEC Results Day 2018 will be published Thursday 16th August

School will open from 10am-2pm for students to pick up their results in person. 

Unfortunately we are unable to provide grades to friends or family members so transcripts will remain in school until students are able to come and collect them.

Preparation for Results Day

Students should ensure that contact details are up to date on UCAS as universities may need to contact them.Students should check their UCAS (track) account from 8am on the morning of Thursday 16th.  If they are holding conditional offers they will be able to see whether or not they have been accepted into their chosen university.

Clearing and Adjustment

Where students feel that their current offer is not the right one for them or they do not meet its conditions they can elect to go into Clearing.  Clearing places tend to fill up very quickly on results day so students should check the availability of courses in advance.  Staff will be on hand to support conversations with universities on results day.

Where students have done better than anticipated they can go through Adjustment.  This means that they can hold their firm offer while searching, through Clearing, for a more competitive course.  Again, it is essential that students research the availability of courses in advance.  Students can search for courses here: https://www.ucas.com/clearing-launch

Apprenticeships and Employment

We are on hand throughout the summer to support those students who have decided to go on to an apprenticeship or into employment.  If you would like to book an appointment with our destinations manager please email s.rout@arkputneyacademy.org
