Welcome to our guest School Entrance Tests post  on A-Level Skills and what should happen on A-Level Results Day 2024.

What A-Level teachers should do on A-Level Results Day 2024?

Since Year 13 students are getting ready to receive their A-level results and might be feeling anxious.

A-Level Teachers should provide support and resources ahead of time, like podcasts, information on further study, and practical details about results day. Wellbeing and transitioning advice should be emphasized.

On A-Level results day, teachers should be positive and calm, helping students who may need extra support due to unexpected results or vulnerabilities.

What should A-Level students do on A-Level Results Day 2024?

Certainly they should review their Ucas Hub, as some universities might accept students who narrowly miss their grades. If not, assure them that missing offers is common and they can still succeed elsewhere.

What should A-Level Students do who miss their offers?

Firstly, remember they do still have several options: appealing, considering insurance choices, using clearing, exploring alternative offers, deferring, taking a gap year, apprenticeships, retaking exams, or reapplying next year.

  1. Appeals: Students can appeal, but it’s a careful decision, knowing grades might change down or up. If appealing, inform the chosen university about a “priority appeal” and inquire if a place can be held.
  2. Insurance choice: If missing “firm” but meeting “insurance” choice requirements, a place is automatically secured at the “insurance” university.
  3. Clearing: If missing both “firm” and “insurance” offers, clearing is an option. They can search on Ucas or use Clearing Plus matches for streamlined choices.
  4. Alternative offer: Students can contact a university for a place in a similar course if they miss their desired one.
  5. Deferral: Students not wanting to attend university immediately can ask to defer, depending on the course’s competitiveness.
  6. Gap year: Those deferring may consider productive activities like travel, internships, or volunteering.
  7. Apprenticeships: Regularly check apprenticeship options through Ucas or the government’s website.
  8. Retaking: Some students might retake exams, but check with the school and university about acceptance.
  9. Reapplying: Students can withdraw from the current Ucas cycle and reapply the following year with new results if circumstances change.
