Applied to university and got the grades

Offers for September of the current year
Students who have met the conditions of their firm (F) choice will be placed there.  Applicants who are not confirmed at their firm choice, but meet the conditions of their insurance (I) choice will be placed at the latter.  UCAS will send these students a Confirmation letter confirming their place.  The letter will advise the applicant if they need to take any further action. For students who have sat A Level exams confirmation letters can be viewed on Track from the day that the results are published.  It is not necessary to ring the university.
UCAS expects students to honour their firm / insurance choices if they are accepted onto the course.  Students who wish to be released from their offers should contact the university directly.
Students holding any other offers, made outside the UCAS system, should reject them as quickly as possible so that the place can be offered to another student.
Students wishing to withdraw (perhaps to re-apply the following year) should do so promptly, using Track.
Students who are uncertain about whether to accept an offer should phone the university as soon as possible. Please be aware that you will need your UCAS Personal I.D. number and course code, and may be held in a queue for some time.
Deferred offers for next year

Students who have received a deferred offer (to start in +12 months) should either:

  • accept the place, or
  • reject it in order to re-apply in the new round of applications

You cannot hold a deferred offer and submit a new application for the same year.

Applied to university and exceeded your predicted grades

Students who have met and exceeded the conditions of their conditional Firm (CF) choice have the option to try and find an alternative place through Adjustment, while still holding their original confirmed offer.  Students register for Adjustment in Track.  Find out more information about adjustment at

Applied to university and haven't got the grades

Students who have not met the conditions of their firm (F) choice, or insurance (I) choice, may still be considered by these institutions.  Students should check Track for updates.

Applicants who have not met the conditions of their offer may be given a changed course/year offer, which will be shown in Track.  They are not obliged to accept this.  They will receive a Confirmation Letter outlining the available options when all confirmation decisions have been made.  They then must either accept or decline the offer.  Students have only 5 calendar days to reply to a changed course offer.

Students who have been unsuccessful and have paid the full application fee (£23) are eligible for Clearing.  Those who originally applied for one choice and paid £12 and are not holding an offer, need to make an additional payment of £11 if they wish to enter clearing.  This can be done in Track using a debit or credit card.
Students eligible for clearing will be issued with a Clearing Number (Shown in Track).  Clearing vacancies will be listed on from results day in August onwards.  Students will need to contact the universities directly to discuss the possibility of gaining a place on the course.  If a university provisionally offers an applicant a place in Clearing, they will usually give them a date by which they must enter the course details in Track.

The College will be open on results day from 10am – 3pm for any students who would like to discuss their application.
