Sending exam results

We receive many results from the exam boards that grade your exams – these are listed below. If yours isn't there, you need to send results to your unis or colleges.

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 from.

  • 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.

Exam results we don't receive

If you're taking an examination not listed below, it's really important that you send your results/certificates to your firm and insurance choice universities/colleges as soon as you receive them. Universities and colleges will need to see proof of the qualifications you listed in the Education section of Apply – this also means GCSE and BTEC results!

Sending proof of qualifications is equally important if you have international qualifications.

If you do not send proof of the qualifications you listed in Apply, this WILL hold up Confirmation decisions by universities and colleges.
