New A-level results

Following the recent government announcement that A-level students will now receive Centre Assessed Grades – grades awarded based on teacher assessment – as their final result, we are still making offers for 2020 entry subject to availability.

We can appreciate that this a hugely unsettling time for those entering university this year. We are doing everything we can to assist those wishing to join us this September. If your circumstances have changed as a result of Centre Assessed Grading, or you’ve applied but did not receive a place with us based on your previous grades, please contact us today. You can learn more about our admissions position via our Centre Assessed Grades FAQs.

Call +44(0)1202 966777 to talk to us about places in Clearing or apply online now.
