How your exam results get to your unis and colleges

We receive many results from the exam boards that provide and grade your exams.

The results we get are listed below.

If yours isn't listed it means you'll have to send your results to your unis or colleges yourself.

What we do with your results

1. First we match them to exam entry records and to the qualifications you list on your application.

  • If your application info doesn't match your results there might be a delay in the outcome of your offer.

2. Then we send them on to the unis and colleges you're holding offers with.

  • Generally it's only the overall result we process and pass on, but there are some exceptions.
  • In some cases where the exam is a modular set of subjects – like a BTEC, International Baccalaureate or Irish Leaving Certificate – we also mention the subjects taken and grades for each one.
  • And for A levels we include the unit grades as well as your overall grade.
