What your results mean for University applications​

Universities across the UK are aware of the arrangements for the assessment of GCSEs, AS and A levels this summer. Qualifications Wales is working closely with the Higher Education sector to make sure students wanting to progress to higher education are not disadvantaged due to the global pandemic.

Universities have been asked not act on provisional grades, so if you are a learner in Wales hoping to study a course in higher education this Autumn, you are asked not to contact universities until your final grade is awarded.

If your final grades in August are lower than you need to access your chosen university course, don’t worry. It’s important to speak to your university and/or UCAS. Universities often accept applicants whose results are below their original offer. They will be able to advise you.

You can find out more on the UCAS website.
