What to expect on results day
Opening your A-level results envelope is a big moment. There will be a slip with your grades on it... but what does it look like, and what does it all mean?
Here's what a typical A-level results slip looks like:
Candidate Number - used by individual exam centres to identify candidates
ULN: Unique Learning Number - used to store all your educational records and never shared with anyone without your permission.
UCI: Unique Candidate Identifier - used to track your results during a modular course
|2||GCE refers to AS- or A-level. If there is more than one specification in a subject they will be labelled A, B etc.|
|3||Each course and each exam has a separate code|
|4||The important one! Your overall grade|
|5||Exact marks for the new courses will be reported to your school. Since there were no exams in 2020, exam boards will only be issuing the qualification grades|
|6||Practical skills which are assessed as part of the new science specifications but don't count towards your grade|
