We receive results from many exam boards and share this information with your choices, but in some cases you may need to send your results to your unis, colleges, or conservatoires.

How we work with exam boards

1. First we match examination entry records 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. When we receive your results, we send them on to the unis, colleges, and conservatoires you have applied to.

  • 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, Access to HE, or Irish Leaving Certificate – we also include the subjects taken and grades for each one.

International and EU students

We send results for International Baccalaureate and some International A levels, but for most international qualifications, you’ll have to send them to the university, college, or conservatoire yourself.

Different course providers have different policies for how they want to receive results. Some might ask for them as soon as you apply – others might do their initial assessment of your application before asking to see proof of your results.
