A Level results day represents a defining moment of your life, so it’s important to prepare for this big event.
Do you know how to collect your results? Or what to do if you don’t meet your offer requirements? These are essential considerations to minimise stress and make sure the day runs as smoothly as possible, regardless of the outcome.
Whether you’re only just starting to prepare for the day or you already think you’re ready, this quiz will help you find out how prepared you really are…
Do you know how you collect your results?
Do you know what grades you need to get into university?
Have you thought about what you'll do if you miss your offer?
How well do you understand the 'clearing' process?
Are you prepared for A Level results day
No - time to make an action plan
With A Level results being released in just a few weeks, it's time to take your head out of the sand and get organised. You need to know what time your school is releasing your results and where you need to go. Do you have a plan for what you will do if your results aren't what you hoped? It's a good idea to think about whether you'll take a year out or enter clearing. The sooner you prepare, the less stressful the day will be...
You've started to think about it - but don't forget the details
You've been preparing for results day for a while, and you know what the day will entail. But how you plan to find your results and what you will do if your grades aren't as you hoped are all matters that are still a bit blurry. It's a good idea to speak with your school and discuss exactly what you need to do, and maybe even speak with your tutor about your options after you've received your results. Knowing how to contact the universities you've applied to and what to do if you miss your offer can help reduce stress on the day - but you're almost there in your organisation!
You're totally prepared
You've had your checklist ready for ages, and you know exactly what to do on the day. You know how you'll recieve your results, and what to do if you don't meet the grades for your university offer. Chances are you're feeling anxious about the results so you're preparing well in advance. Don't forget to allow for changes in your ready-made schedule as sometimes things may change on the day, but if you prepared for your A Level exams as well as you prepared for the results, you should be just fine!
