Collecting A-level results 

Students will be able to collect their results from their school or college in the morning, usually from 10am. It is advisable for students to bring with them their Ucas letter and the relevant contact details for any university that has made them a firm or insurance offer, as well as copies of personal statements and references.

Those who are unable to collect their results in person can request in advance to receive them via email. These will be available from 8am. To receive your results via email, speak to your school or college.

What if the results aren’t what I expected?

If the student has a university place pending, you can request that the exam board completes a priority remark. If the student does not have a university place pending, then you can request a copy of the marked paper or a clerical check, or a review of marking. You can also recall a paper to support teaching and learning.

To get in touch with the relevant exam board, use the links below:






A-level students in England and Wales can call an exam results helpline, run by Ucas, 0800 100 900. It is open from 15-29 August.

A-level students in Scotland can call a separate helpline, also run by Ucas, 0808 100 8000. It is open from 6-14 August.​

University clearing

If your students didn’t make the grades they needed for their university course, then they will need to go through Clearing.
