When is A-level results day 2019?
The day of judgement falls on Thursday, August 15, 2019, as students will be able to go to their school or college to pick up their results.
Students can collect their A-level results any time after 6am – providing their school or college is open at that time.
Pupils will be able to see their university confirmation on Track from 8am.
The Track will be updating records for each applicant, so you can keep an eye on it.
Students in Scotland get their SQA results on Tuesday August 6, 2019.
What happens if you miss your A-level grades for university?
For those who are looking to go to uni but fall short of the requirements come results day, you will still be able to browse the Ucas website for clearing spaces at other universities.
Ucas Track is a great tool to see your university offers, invitations to interview and if you have a place after your A-level results..
If your A-level results are higher than those required for your firm offer, you are entitled to look around for a university with higher entry requirements if you wish.
This is known as the “Adjustment period” and you will be given five days from the date your conditional offer is changed to an unconditional offer to search for a possible alternative.
If you haven’t chosen to defer already, you will need to get in touch with the university as soon as your place with them is confirmed to tell them that you wish to defer the offer.

What happens if you fail an A-level exam?
Failing an exam is not the end of the world, although it can bring disappointment to some students.
If you can’t get into a university using clearing, you can get your paper re-marked or you can resit an exam or the entire year.
Resitting exams can be required for those wishing to study competitive courses like medicine.
What should you bring with you on A-level results day?
Students are advised to bring with them their Ucas letter and contact details for any university offers they have, plus everything you’d need to apply through clearing, such as a phone and the Clearing app.
It may also be useful to bring a copy of your personal statement and a copy of your reference.
People can actually apply through clearing if needed from June 30 – but its most frequently used after results day by people who have just missed out on their grades.
It remains open until September, allowing you to contact unis directly if they still have spaces on a course which takes your fancy.
