Done better than you expected in you’re A Levels?

By Sj.Cliff
Done better than you expected in you’re A Levels?

If you’ve done better than predicted on you’re A Levels, there may be new options available to you. You could try and get on a more advanced course, a higher level university or a new career choice altogether. Although you don’t have to, you may want to consider looking at Adjustment.

Be sure to speak to somebody (your parents, close friends and career advisors at college would be the best places to start) before you consider Adjustment to make sure it’s right for you.

So, how does it work?

To register for an adjustment, just log into your UCAS account and go to the Track tab. If you’ve exceeded the requirements of your unconditional offer, then you’ll be able to register for adjustment via the choices screen inside Track.

As there is no vacancy list within Adjustment, you’ll have to get in touch with the universities you are interested in via their admissions office. Using the search available in Adjustment, you can search for a course and look at all the universities offering what you would like to do.

When in contact with a university, give them your name and UCAS ID and ask for further information about their vacancies. You have no obligation to accept any offers there and then – only verbally accept an offer if it’s the one you truly want, if not then keep searching.
If you are offered a place you’d like, get in touch with the university and accept. Make sure you only accept one offer and be sure it is the one that you want.

As soon as you’ve accepted, your Track screen will update and you’ll receive a confirmation through the post.

Don’t worry if you can’t find an offer you would like straight away. You have a week from results day (August 14th) to find your new place and if there isn’t anything you fancy, your original acceptance place is still yours.

There’s a cost of £11 to apply for multiple courses, but you may just be able to do a degree you’ve even more interested in!

Good luck guys and we look forward to speaking to you when you’re an undergrad!
