Good luck to all students picking up results tomorrow

As ever, it's best to be prepared, so we've put together a checklist of what you might need on the day - before you can start celebrating.

  • Your UCAS Track login details. This will be on a letter or email from when you started your application.
  • Mobile phone (fully charged). For calls, selfies, anything really.
  • Contact details for your university choices.
  • Bookmark the web address of Clearing and Adjustment UCAS pages.
  • The details of conditional offers and clearing phone numbers for universities of interest.
  • Should you not be available on results day, give someone nominated access so they can speak to UCAS on your behalf.
  • Your carefully researched clearing list, if you suspect you might need it.
  • Personal statement
  • GCSE results.
  • Don't forget a pen and paper as well.

First things to do on the day

  • Keep calm.
  • Check UCAS Track. You'll be able to see confirmation (or not) but not your grades. This is live from 8am.
  • Collect your grades: Check with your school or college when they open for you to collect your grades as it can vary.
  • If you’ve applied for an apprenticeship or job, contact the employer to confirm your results or negotiate your offer if you haven't got the required grades. They may still accept you.

Good luck!
