If you achieved the GCSE grades you were hoping for or did better than expected

  • If your grades are higher than expected, you may wish to speak to your chosen college or apprenticeship to see if higher grades give you more options.

If you did not achieve the grades you were aiming for

Don’t panic! You still have options.

  • some colleges, sixth forms and apprenticeships may still offer you a place if you only just missed out on grades. Please contact colleges and training providers as soon as possible, to discuss your options
  • you may want to consider re-taking GCSE subject/s at college. Please contact colleges, as soon as possible, to find out more
  • look at the information about ‘Education or training at 16 and 17’
  • speak to your careers adviser at school, to talk through your options
  • if your college doesn’t have a careers advisor, then please contact your local branch of Hampshire Careers and Employability Service at Hampshire County Council.

A-Level Exam Results- 15 August 2013

On results day:

If your exam results are what you expected and you have applied to a university

If your exam results are not what you expected

  • if your results or grades are lower than expected, contact your chosen college or university as they may still offer you a place
  • think about re-taking some of the subject/s if you didn’t get the grades you were hoping for – you could consider going to college to do this
  • if you want to go to university but your results aren’t good enough to get you into your first choice university you can also enter the ‘clearing’ system. This gives you the opportunity to gain a university place before the academic year starts
  • if you’ve met and exceeded the conditions of your conditional firm choice, then if you want, you can use the UCAS Adjustment Service. You can find out about courses with higher entry requirements.

Alternatives to university

University can be a great opportunity to gain more knowledge. However, if you have not achieved the grades for university, you may wish to arrange a gap year. This could mean finding a job and/or work experience, whilst re-applying to university.

If you’re not sure about university, then before you decide, check out your other options.  You might find the following websites useful.
