Results day is looming and TSR tradition means we have to have a countdown thread for everyone to get to know each other, talk about their hopes/fears and generally relax (as well as sharing advice and information before the big day).* We'll update this post with pointers to advice and support soon but for now introduce yourselves

FAQs

RESULTS

When can I collect my results from school/college?

That depends on the arrangements your school/college make - if you don't know the details then ring them up on Wednesday the 17th (there should be someone in that day) and ask.

How do I collect my results online?

Again, 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 get the results from the exam boards approximately a week before results day. They spend a day or two matching them to your applications and then send them on to universities either overnight Friday/Saturday.
Universities then spend Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday MANUALLY comparing 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).

UPDATE: UCAS had all the results delivered to them on time by Friday morning. As of 7:30pm Friday evening universities have the results

I've change my mind about the course/university I want to go to - what do I do?

See this article https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...surance-choice*

Track on Results Day

When will UCAS update?

UCAS will go live AFTER 8am on results day. UCAS say 8:15am - it used to go live a little earlier, but the embargo time that UCAS and universities work to has been pushed back from 6am to 8am this year so it WILL NOT be before 8am. The embargo agreement is between UCAS, Universities and A level Exam Boards - no one is going to risk getting in trouble by releasing information early.

It WON'T go live at midnight.

Once it "goes live" EVERYONE will be able to see any decisions that their universities have sent to UCAS.* Just because it's live doesn't mean it will update for everyone. About 100,000 people every year don't get a clear answer from UCAS first thing on Results Day - they have to collect their results and then ring up their firm/insurance uni.

My UCAS didn't change - is it worth hitting refresh until it does?
NO - once UCAS goes live again it then gets re-frozen in that state (because UCAS need to handle everyone and their dog hitting refresh constantly). UCAS WILL NOT CHANGE between 8am and midday. Hitting refresh just slows things down for everyone else.

Give yourself some good karma - get off UCAS hub and go and have a look on the UCAS course search, get together your contact numbers for your unis, top your phone up with credit (and charge it) and get your results from school/college.

what will UCAS show?

It depends how quick your universities are. There's a lot of scenarios. The post below gives an idea of what might show,what that means and what you need to do about that. Use the flowchart at the end of this post as a quick reference
Track scenarios
(Original post by PQ)
Ok let's break it down* Firm is X, insurance is Y
X -CF, Y-CI - neither has decided ring firm
X-CF, Y-UI - insurance has accepted but firm not decided. Ring firm*
X-CF, Y-R - insurance has rejected, firm not decided. Ring firm.
X-UF, Y-CI, firm accepted, insurance not decided. Celebrate.
X-UF, Y-UI, both accepted. You're going to your firm. Celebrate.*
X-UF, Y-R, firm accepted, insurance rejected. You're going to your firm. Celebrate.
X-R, Y-CF firm rejected, insurance not deciding. Ring insurance.*
X-R, Y-UF firm rejected, insurance accepted. Celebrate
X-R, Y-R both rejected. You're in clearing.
This ignores changed course offers which either university can make.* Both universities do their own thing. They don't have time to look what the other is doing.
My UCAS 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 UCAS 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 missed 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 UCAS hasn't changed that doesn't give ANY indication as to whether your results are good or bad. In fact in some ways it's good - of those applicants who got a definite answer on results day last year...?....150,000 of them were rejected by both their firm and insurance and placed in Clearing. Being in limbo for a couple of hours is a GOOD thing compared to that.

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* 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.

Clearing ARRRRGH!

quick guide to Clearing
Spoiler:
Show
- Search for your subject areas/key words (there may be more than one eg you might find some courses listed in Biology that aren't listed in Life Sciences and vice versa) on UCAS course search (make sure you tick "courses with places available" and select the right place fee status).

- Note down the universities and courses that you're interested in - don't just rely on the UCAS website check out the websites for those universities - see if they mention the grades they want, find out a bit more about the course (eg does it have a compulsory module in a topic you hate or something that would put you off altogether).

- also double check that the course is still listed as having vacancies on the uni website.

- If you've got the grades and the course is still open and you fancy the uni RING THEIR HOTLINE (even now with lots of staff working from home ringing will get you a quicker response than using an online form/email)

They'll ask questions, if you match what they're after they might make you a verbal offer.
Be sure to ask
a) how long the offer is valid for
b) what accommodation is available
c) if they're running any open days over the weekend/have any virtual tours for you to visit (and whether they can hold your offer til after then)
d) when you can expect to get sent an email confirming the details of the offer (if you don't receive it then RING BACK - they might have misheard or mistyped your email address)

Repeat the ringing around until you're fed up of speaking. Collect a list of unis that have made you offers - DO NOT STOP AT THE FIRST OFFER.

At 3pm ish when UCAS goes fully functional if you've got an offer you want to take up then add it on UCAS.

As long as you apply within the deadlines given then your uni should confirm this place within 24 hours (usually quicker) and it will show as your new Firm Unconditional place on UCAS . Then you just need to sort out accommodation and let student finance know about the new university/course

See the FAQ for more help.

I did really badly - what do I do now?
There will be a thread with information and advice on remakes/remarks/appeals
There will be threads in the applications, clearing and ucas forum for people planning to take a gap year and reapply and help available in the gap years

Results day stats from previous years:
Spoiler:
Show
On results day in 2017 (2018 and 2019 were similar, 2020 and 2021 were weird):
58% of applicants were unconditional with their FIRM
5% were unconditional with their INSURANCE
1% of applicants were already unconditional with a clearing choice (Scottish/IB/reapplicants who had their results)
15% of applicants were in limbo waiting for a decision from either their firm or insurance.
22% were in clearing (either because they had no offers initially, didn't accept an offer initially or both their firm and insurance had rejected them).*

By the end of Clearing last year:
62% of applicants were unconditional with their FIRM
6% were unconditional with their INSURANCE
6% were unconditional with a CLEARING choice
5% were still in limbo (these are usually international students who don't bother sending through their results or cancelling their applications)
0.1% were unconditional with an ADJUSTMENT choice
21% were still in clearing (because they decided to take a gap year or are international and had a place in a university in another country).*
So about half the limbo UCAS people end up with their Firm, about half find a place through clearing and a smidge end up with their insurance.

By the end of Clearing last year:
62% of applicants were unconditional with their FIRM
6% were unconditional with their INSURANCE
6% were unconditional with a CLEARING choice
5% were still in limbo (these are usually international students who don't bother sending through their results or cancelling their applications)
0.1% were unconditional with an ADJUSTMENT choice
21% were still in clearing (because they decided to take a gap year or are international and had a place in a university in another country).*
So about half the limbo UCAS people end up with their Firm, about half find a place through clearing and a smidge end up with their insurance.

posting to sub, this looks fabulous @PQ thank you very much!
I've been lurking for a while so thought i might as well introduce myself...

Introduce yourself

1. AS or A level?
A Level so this is final final (screams)

2. What subjects?
I think Year 11 me really enjoyed torture - Biology (AQA), Chemistry (OCR B SALTERS) and Maths (AQA) with an achieved A* in EPQ (Edexcel)
I've put my exam boards in so any AS students can PM me if they want any help, I'd be happy to give it

3. What university is your firm/insurance?
Firm - University of Southampton
Insurance - this girl got one offer (which she is proud of) so no insurance, not sure if clearing or gap year but definitely tears involved here

4. Which subject?
Medicine - hence why I'm proud of my solitary offer

5. What grades are required?
AAA (no that's not a scream of pain, that's my required grades)

6. Going to uni this year or taking a gap year?
Uni this year hopefully, every crossable appendage crossed for results day

Edit for formatting cos I'd formatted half of it and not the other half and it was bugging me

1. A levels
2. Math, Further Math, Economics, Computer Science

3. Imperial (F) and warwick (B)
4. Computing(F) /computer science(B)
5. A*AAA and Grade 2 in STEP 2 (F), AAA (B)
6. Hopefully this year.

7.A*A*A*A (A in econ), but i feel that I can go as low as A*A*AB (B in econ and A in cs) depending on how others do as I am tettering on the edges of the boundaries. I feel that I could atleast get a grade 3 in STEP, but I need to 2 to guarentee the place.
8. A little worried, I really want to go imperial for cs and don't want a B in economics or a 3 in STEP to ruin that chance.
9. How lenient do you think universities will be on results day compared to previous years, especially universities such as those mentioned above?
