hey guys,

I will be taking a gap year to do an extra a level and then applying through UCAS. When checking whether I am eligible for contextual offers, which school do I put for the 'level 3 school', where I did my a-levels.

I currently live in area of low progression to higher education but go to a non-fee paying grammar school. In my gap year, I will be going to Westminster Kingsway college which is shown to have low levels of attainment. Will my contextual offer depend on the grammar school or the college I go to in my gap year?

I'm not sure, but given that you're going to be enrolled in college I don't think it will technically be called a gap year, and I would have thought they'd use the last educational establishment in which you're registered. Phone a Uni that you are considering, and ask their admissions team.

You must put down the school/college you are currently studying with.

Therefore, if you go to a different college next year to complete the extra A level then you would be applying through that college - and you can only use any contextual offers etc attached to that college not the one where you did your A levels previously.

You obviously will have both on your UCAS application (as well as the qualifications you got at each school), so it might depend on universities' specific policies

I'd say a reasonable policy for a university to have would be some combination, where your achieved grades have to meet the standard offer and grades you're going to get at your college would have to meet the contextual offer (not sure how that would work in practice though).
