It’s the day that most teenagers dread. Collecting A-Level results can be a very nerve-wracking experience. Finally finding out if you’ve succeeded in getting it to the university of your choice is a big moment. However, it’s important to remember that it’s not the end of the world if you don’t receive the news you would have wanted.
Some students will discover that they haven’t got the grades they needed for the university they wanted to go to. That isn’t a problem; there are still options available if this applies to you, the main one being clearing. A record number of 57,000 teenagers still got places at universities last year through the UCAS clearing process.
