A Level results collection
How do I collect my results?
Students will be able to collect their A Level results from Waldegrave Sixth Form between 9-10am on Thursday 18 August 2016. We hope many of you choose to collect them in person so that we can share in your successes with you. (see below for separate AS Level collection arrangements)

I’m not sure I will achieve the grades – can I do anything before results day in August?
If you feel that you will be unable to meet your offers you have two alternative options:
(i) Students can email admissions at the universities whom they have accepted an offer from to change the status of their application to ‘decline’. At this stage, the student can apply again through UCAS Extra, a service that offers students the chance to pick another course, perhaps better suited to their current level of attainment. UCAS Extra runs from now until June 30th 2016, applications can be done via: https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/apply-and-track/track-your-application/extra-choices.
(ii) Students who wish to wait, but feel after sitting their exams they are unlikely to meet the conditions of their offer have got the option to go through Clearing early. As above they would need to have the university change their application to ‘decline’, and they can then proceed with a search via Clearing after 6 July.
UCAS offer advice to all students and can talk through individual applications to ensure the student makes the correct choice, the number to access this service is: 03714680468.
What should I do if I have not met the required grades for my university place?
The advice from UCAS is as follows:
If a student does not meet the conditions of their firm choice on 18 August, their application will be passed on to the insurance choice. If neither university accepts then the student will be automatically placed into UCAS Clearing, this is updated via their Track status on UCAS. UCAS Clearing offers all the courses that are left and Waldegrave staff have undergone specialised training to support students with this process. For further information and FAQs please visit: www.ucas.com
I need advice about what to do next – what support is there for me?
The Sixth form Leadership and Careers Guidance teams will be in the Sixth form study base between 9am – 4pm on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 August. Please email email@example.com or call 020 8894 3244 ex205 to make an appointment.
How does UCAS work between now and Results Day?
UCAS suspend the track service that students use for their applications from the 12 August and it is then re-opened on results day. Clearing is an option for those who have not met their grade requirements -- last year 61,000 students used this service successfully to obtain places at universities. For more detailed advice on how clearing works please refer to the following link: https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/apply-and-track/results/no-offers-use-clearing
From Wednesday 6 July onwards course vacancies are available to research on Clearing at www.ucas.com
Students who are not confident that they will meet their grade requirements, may want to research courses and universities that are current to give them an idea of their options for clearing on results day. This is a live database and is updated regularly.
What should I do if I want to request a remark?
Exam Remark Request forms are available from the Exams Officer, here on the website, on Frog and from Sixth Form reception. Before applying for a re-mark we strongly suggest you seek further advice/support from your subject teacher in the first instance as marks and grades can go up, down or remain the same.
AS Exam results collection
How do I collect my results?
AS examination results will be emailed home to students using the school student email address on the morning of Thursday 18 August.
Students who are concerned about their results and may not have attained the grades to progress into Year 13 can book an appointment to see a member of the sixth form team between 9am – 4pm on Friday 19 August.
Students unable to attend at this time need to see Mrs Page at the beginning of term.
Please email your requests and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Re-Enrolment of Year 13
All Year 13 students will have to be re-enrolled into Year 13 at the start of the school year. This process will take place on Monday 5 September and will involve students updating their personal details, completing start of term administration and agreeing their final timetable for 2016-17. It is expected that most students will want to drop from four subjects to three at A2. Some students will need support and guidance about making this decision and should consider the following advice.
- It is usually best to choose the subjects to continue from your three best final AS grades
- Make sure you have researched your university choices and entrance criteria for your next steps
- Ask your subject teachers for advice. They will be available for advice from Monday 5 September
