Have everything ready
Results day can be stressful, so make sure you know how it works and what to expect.
- Have your Track login details handy and update your contact details if you need to.
- Make sure you're available on results day, because we can't speak to anyone else about your application details unless you give them nominated access to speak on your behalf.
- Check how your exam results get to your universities/colleges – most come directly to us from the awarding organisations, and we send them on to your choices. But if not, you just send your exam results to your universities/colleges yourself.
Hopefully you'll get the exam grades you need, but if you just miss out, the university/college might accept you anyway.
- You might get a place on either your firm or insurance choice, depending how well your exams go.
- You might be offered an alternative by the university/college – a 'changed course offer' (which you'll need to accept or decline).
- You might not get a place, but you can search through our Clearing service to see what courses still have vacancies.
If no decisions are showing, give your universities/colleges a call to find out more.
- If you had a conditional firm offer you met and exceeded, you might be curious about courses with higher entry requirements.
- If so, you can see what's available in our Adjustment service.
- Find info about exam re-marks – you'll need to try to arrange the re-mark as quickly as possible, and keep in touch with your university or college to keep them up-to-date.
- Look for course vacancies in our Clearing service, or look into other options – like a gap year, work or an Apprenticeship – either instead of higher education, or just while you reapply for next year.
Then if you’ve got a place...
Congratulations! Your Confirmation letter should appear in Track five to seven days after your place is confirmed.
Make sure you check your Confirmation letter carefully – it will say if there's anything else you need to do, or if your university/college will be in touch with further instructions; maybe to provide proof of your qualifications or medical requirements for example.
