  • Students across city get results
  • Questions answered on UCAS, grades and results

 Thursday will see thousands of students given their A-level results across the region.

However, due to coronavirus there are still many questions parents may have about this year's results day.

Here are the answers according to Prospects:

When do A-level results come out? 

The A-level results day for 2020 is Thursday August 13, 2020. 

How are grades being determined this year? 

Students will be given formal grades that fairly reflect the work they've put in, with these based on previous performance, including GCSEs and mock exams. 

Non-exam assessment such as coursework will also be taken into account, along with the grade they expected you to have achieved should exams have gone ahead. 

Can you sit an exam if you are not happy with your grades? 

For those who feel that these grades don't accurately reflect your performance, there will be an opportunity to sit an exam later in the year. 

When will UCAS track update on the day? 

The system is expected to be available at around 8am on results day. 

After it's been updated, Track becomes 'frozen' and your page won't change again until midday at the earliest according to Prospects. 

What will Track show? 

If decisions have been made by your university choices, and UCAS have been notified, you can expect to see the following changes to offers on your Track: Unconditional - your place on the course has been confirmed. This may be your firm or insurance offer, or both. Unsuccessful - you've not been accepted by your choice(s). You're now eligible to enter Clearing. Unconditional Changed Course (UCC) - you don't have the necessary grades for your offer, but the university has proposed a similar course requiring lower grades. They may also offer an alternative start date, such as deferred entry. You have five days to decide and can discuss the opportunity with the university in question.
