Happy student looking at smartphone

Exam results incoming! Here's how to be ready

A-level results day is on Thursday 15 August 2024, and there's plenty you can do before that day to be fully prepared.

On The Student Room, you'll find support and resources to guide you through getting your grades - including how to get ready for university and how to find alternative options in Clearing.  

Here's a quick guide to what's available.

1. Find out more about results day

Save our exam results 2024 hub as one of your bookmarks. From here you can get to our results days guides and all the main discussion groups.

2. Read advice from uni application experts

University applications can sometimes get a little complicated, which is why we have Ucas-trained advisers on The Student Room.

You can ask them a question, or just read the advice they've given to others. Find them over in Applications, Clearing and Ucas.

3. Chat with other uni applicants

We've got a group chat for every single university in the UK, so you can hear from other people who have applied to the same unis as you. Find links to all of these in the uni applicant groups discussion.

4. Work out how Clearing might help you

It's a good idea to get your head around Ucas Clearing before results day. There are thousands of other course opportunities available, which people use to either trade up or find an alternative if they miss their offers. Read The Student Room's guide to Clearing to find out how it all works.

5. Use our tools to prepare

We also have tools available, like our get prepared for results day template which will help you with all of the things you need to think about and prepare for results day. If you want to prepare yourself for making Clearing phone calls then we have a quiz where you can find out how well you’d do on a Clearing call.

6. Get uni-specific advice on Clearing

Lots of uni reps are on The Student Room to provide Clearing advice - find links to them here

7. Find contact details for universities

We also have all of the university phone numbers and contact details for Ucas Clearing to save you time on the day.
