Today marks A-Level Results Day for all those students who chose to sit their examinations in the autumnal series. 2020 has proved to be an unusual year for all, and that includes students studying online A-Levels. Due to students not being able to sit their examinations in the summer as normal, many distance learning students were unable to achieve a grade, under the new requirements, and so instead had to defer to the autumnal exam series.
Although results are being delivered later in the year than usual and mostly via electronical methods, the actual process and feelings of A-Level Results Day will still remain the same. Some students will be ecstatic with their results and be happily on their way to the next stage of their educational journey, others may be at a bit of a loss with the results they have achieved.
If you’re one of the students who hasn’t achieved the grades that you want, it’s important to remember, you don’t need to panic, the main thing is to keep positive and keep yourself focused on your end goal. There are lots of options out there open to you, you just need to sit down and decide which route you feel will best suit you.
Firstly, you need to look at where you have fallen short, if it’s a case of you not getting the right grade with just one A-Level, then you can look at sitting the exams for that subject again in June 2021. If doing re-sits is out of the question for you, then you need to start looking at how many UCAS points you have achieved and alternate routes for you to get into university and study a degree you want to study.
Should you need any help or advice from our Student Services Team, then get in touch and we will happily help you work out a new route for you to get to where you want to be.
