Results
Are this year's papers and mark schemes available?
UPDATE: Neither papers nor mark schemes can be linked here due to copyright reasons.

When do grade boundaries get released?
UPDATE: Grade boundaries have been released.

How do I collect my results online?
This depends on your exam boards and/or your school/college. If you don't know then ask them directly.

When do unis get our results?
UCAS got the results from the exam boards approximately a week before results day. They spent a day or two matching them to your applications and then sent them on to universities either overnight Friday or Saturday. Universities have now MANUALLY compared every offer to the results to decide whether applicants have met their offers or not (and if not whether they can be accepted with lower grades).

Track on Results Day
My Track didn't change - is it worth hitting refresh until it does?
NO - once Track goes live again it then gets re-frozen in that state (because UCAS need to handle everyone and their dog hitting refresh constantly). Track WILL NOT CHANGE between 6am and midday. Hitting refresh just slows things down for everyone else. Give yourself some good karma - get off Track and go and buy the Telegraph (just in case), get together your contact numbers for your unis, top your phone up with credit (and charge it) and get ready to collect your results from School.

My Track didn't change! That means I failed!
NO - Universities have to MANUALLY compare every set of results with the offer conditions - even if it's a simple YES or NO for every one of those that means a lot of data input to put in to their database to send through to UCAS.If Track hasn't changed then that means that either:

a) You've met your offer and your uni knows that and hasn't got round to telling UCAS.
b) You've met your offer and your uni doesn't know that because your results got muddled up so they're waiting to talk to you to check before telling UCAS.
c) You've missed your offer but your uni wants you anyway but hasn't got round to telling UCAS.
d) You've imssed your offer but your uni want to make you an offer for a similar but less full course and haven't got round to telling UCAS.
e) You've missed your offer and your uni haven't decided yet whether they can take you or not - they might need to see how many Insurance people they have to take before they know they've got room first.
f) You've missed your offer and your firm uni doesn't want you but hasn't got round to telling UCAS.In other words - if Track hasn't changed that doesn't give ANY indication as to whether your results are good or bad.

My Firm place has confirmed me! That means I passed my A levels!
NO - remember - these things are decided MANUALLY....someone somewhere sits down with a pile of UCAS forms and a list of results and ticks off results against offers. If your firm has confirmed you - well done! You're in! BUT don't go into School/College expecting to see a long line of A grades. Just as a lot of unis can be slow in sending decisions to UCAS, some unis are VERY quick and will not only confirm the people who met their offers but will have confirmed a whole BUNCH of people who missed their grades.

It was meant to be concealed amongst the unanswered threads for a little while longer! When I saw the rate at which the page numbers were increasing in the first thread, I thought, 'there's only one thing for this; mark two!'.

At least there's a new poll guys.

Hope everyone did well.

normally I have reservations about people (but then again, who am I :lol:) doing that while the old thread has a significant number pages to get through, but I see this post always requires a lot of construction so good effort.

:borat: yesss.. and if not, Nandos is always fun to go to.
