A Level Results Day – Are You Ready?
Are you ready for it?
As far as days go, there’s not too much you can do about it now. A Level Results Day stirs the same emotions year on year; nerves, angst and restlessness. You’ve studied the course, put the work in and taken the exam; and as papers have been marked, moderated and verified, results are flooding in ready for the big day next week.
The waiting is horrible but, whatever your grades, it’s not the be all and end all. This is the start. The start of your next step with the college.
When do I get my results?
Results are out on Thursday 17th August 2017. If you studied your A Levels with us, they will be collectible from our Hillsborough campus from 7a.m. – nobody wants to be waiting longer than needs be! If you didn’t study with us please check with your provider what time you will be able to collect from.
And how do I find out if I’ve been accepted to The Sheffield College?
The wait can be pretty intense, pretty stressful. Impatiently waiting for the clock to tick round until it’s time to collect your results to find out whether you’ve been accepted on your degree with us at The Sheffield College.
You will be able to check on UCAS as soon as it updates (any time from midnight) and, whilst you won’t get your results online, you will find out whether you’ve been accepted on to your choice of course at The Sheffield College. Alternatively, you’ll find out when you collect your results in person along with finding out what grades you have got.
You should receive a notification email letting you know the portal has updated but there’s going to be a lot of people using UCAS at exactly the same time so it may take a little time to come through. Have your sign in details ready and, if you’ve got the grades you’ll be seeing this…
Congratulations, you got the grades!
Well done! You’ve opened your browser and that Conditional Offer has changed to an Unconditional Offer for that coveted place you’ve been after with us. You’ll see this message and then you’ll know:
