What next guidance for A-level students from universities
QUEEN'S University has issued advice as well as help and support lines for students receiving their A level results today.
Students have been urged not to contact the university with results as it receives A-level and AS-level results directly from UCAS. Students will be contacted if any results appear to be missing.
Decisions made by Queen's, the Ulster University and Stranmillis University College are posted on a website hosted by Queen's and are updated twice each day.
The address is www.qub.ac.uk/ucas. This also carries the most comprehensive details and is the simplest way to find out about the status of an application and Clearing vacancies. Details are also published on the UCAS website at www.ucas.com.
Applicants who achieve the exact grades or points specified in their conditional offer should have their place confirmed through UCAS.
Students who do better than expected can, through the Adjustment process, hold their offer while they look for an alternative course. Full details are available on the UCAS website http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works/undergraduate/results/better-than-expected.
QUB has said the priority of universities is to communicate decisions as quickly as possible and that every effort is made to accommodate as many applicants as possible on the course of their choice or a suitable alternative.
Queen’s has provided all students holding offers with an Enquiry Form. This should be returned to the University as soon as possible if they want to be considered for an alternative course, in the event that they are unsuccessful for their original choice.
Any student unable to gain admission to either their firm or insurance choice, and who is not offered an acceptable alternative course, will be eligible to participate in the Clearing process. Details of Clearing vacancies appear in the national press, on www.ucas.com and on university websites.
Queen’s guidance lines for students: 028 9097 3838 with numerous lines open from 9.30am to 6.00pm today and and tomorrow. For further information go to: http://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/NewStudents/
On Monday August 17, a personal advice session will also be held at Whitla Hall, QUB between 2pm and 5pm.
