This page is designed to give current students information that may be pertinent to the summer Results Day.

Results Days

Results will be emailed to students via their College email accounts. Please see General Exams Information and Timetable for more information.

Review of marking and access to scripts

The College may be very busy with enquiries from students on and just after Results Day. Please see the Review of Marking and Access to Scripts page for further guidance.

Enquiries should be emailed to exams@reigate.ac.uk Alternatively, students can speak to the College’s Examinations Officer in person on Results day and the following day.

Exams information for former students

Examination Certificates (GCSE, BTEC, AS and A Level)

All students who have completed courses at Reigate College during the previous academic year will have certificates.  Certificates will be posted, usually in November and December, to students who have left College. If you have not received your certificates by 31 December please contact the College at exams@reigate.ac.uk.

Students who are still at College will be expected to collect their certificates in person during the autumn or spring term.  The College is obliged to keep certificates for a period of 12 months.

Re-sitting examinations after leaving Reigate College

It may be possible to re-sit written exams in the year after you leave Reigate College. You cannot re-submit coursework or re-take practical exams. There are limited opportunities to re-sit reformed subjects, as all components of the assessment must be taken in the same exam series. Please note you will not be able to have any tuition or access to College facilities; we can only offer the opportunity to re-sit the exam.

Ex-students who are considering re-sitting an exam should contact the Exams Office during October or November.

Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate candidates who have not previously been students at Reigate College. 

Next steps after Summer Results Day

The following scenarios may apply to students on or after Results Day. Please decide which of them applies and follow the links:

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 www.ucas.com/adjustment.

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 www.ucas.com 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. Further information can be found at www.ucas.com/clearing

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