Statement on Ofqual announcement about A Level results

August 18th, 2020

We recognise that the class of 2020 have faced significant disruption this year and we are doing everything we can to support them in their university journey.

On Monday 17 August, the UK government announced that results will revert to the grades submitted by schools and colleges (centre assessed grades).

We have written to all applicants who were unsuccessful in securing a place. We will honour offers and reinstate places (note some exceptions below) to applicants whose grades have been adjusted and now meet the conditions of their original offer from us or the entry requirements advertised in Clearing for those courses that went into Clearing.

Exceptions may apply to our Medicine and Veterinary Sciences courses which have strict limits on the number of places, as well as a small number of other courses that have placements. Where they are full, we may be able to offer an alternative location or start date or we will honour the 2020 offer for 2021 entry.

As we receive results directly from Ofqual via UCAS, we anticipate that any updated grades will also be provided this way. Therefore, applicants do not need to take any further action at this time.

Our Admissions team is working hard to answer calls and emails and process offers to UCAS. Colleagues will be available on live chat from Wednesday 19 August.

We are working closely with UCAS on the process for updated results and responding to the latest advice from the government and Ofqual.
