Sat your exams in autumn 2020?

Following the cancellation of exams in 2020, students in England were awarded Centre Assessment Grades (CAGs) or calculated grades, but also given the option to sit their exams in the autumn.

If you chose to sit any of your exams, your results will be made available to you by your school or college on 17 December 2020.

If you’re holding a conditional firm place, please get in touch with the university or college as soon as you receive your results to discuss what this means for your application and to check if you have met the conditions of their offer.

It’s important to remember that your final certified grades will be the highest you received – whether that was your CAGs, calculated grades, or autumn exam results.


All Clearing vacancies will be listed from 6 July 2021.
