Guys, i want to know when uk student enter uni after graduate from high school. I read that you get your result or hs diploma or whatever in july/august and then apply on october-january.

So for example, in uk if i graduate highschool at august 2020, then i apply to uni at october 2020. So i go to uni the next year? At 2021? Is it like that? Because that is very long time to wait to uni, like a gap year... or is it not like that? Im curious hehehe

You do GCSE exams at 16 years old (These are used in admissions to competitive universities, and you need to pass these to enter most universities)

You do A Level exams that are at 18 years old

You apply to university a few months before A Level exams to get offers from universities (like 7 months before), and then you get offers requiring to get certain grades in these A level tests (which youll know before you take the exams). If you get the grades you go to you chosen university.

e.g John does gcse june 2016

John applies to universities in December 2017 (where his GCSE and performance is mock tests determines his "predicted grades" from teachers, which universities can see on his application, and also personal statement/references)

John gets all his offers by March 2018
John does all his exams between May-Jun 2018

John start university October 2018


The better your GCSE grades, personal statement, teacher predicted grades for A level, all are the better odds higher universities will give you an offer

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (650)
