UCAS Update

By Ballyclare High School on 20 August, 2020


Following recent announcements, we are working closely with awarding bodies to receive students’ revised grades and are aiming to share these with universities and colleges by this Friday, 21 August.

It’s important to note that we will only be sharing students revised grades with universities and colleges that are higher than the grades they received on results day.

UCAS will not be communicating the revised grades with applicants. You will need to share your students’ revised grades with them. If then your students wish to reconsider their options, they will need to wait until universities and colleges have received their revised grades before they can reach out to discuss their options. We will let you and your students know as soon as this has been done.

We have emailed your students today to provide an update and advise them on their next steps. Please remind students that no one’s grade will go down, and if they already have a place, this will not change – it’s still theirs if they want it.

It’s really important your students understand:

  1. Offers will not automatically changein Track.
  2. When the revised grades are issued, students will not automatically be confirmed at their original firm choice.
  3. Students will need to contact their preferred university or college (including their original firm) who will be able to advise what to do next.
