Year 13 University applicants- what next?

For our year 13 university applicants, the exciting times are approaching!

However, the process after application can be confusing. What do you need to do next?

  • Firstly, you need to keep logging on to UCAS track so that you can track your offers. Some universities will write to you with an offer but you are likely to hear about an offer first through Track
  • Carefully study the conditions of the offer in terms of Grades. What do they want you to get in order to secure the place? Is it realistic for you?
  • When you have your offers (it is best to wait for all of them), you then need to decide on a FIRM CHOICE and a RESERVE CHOICE. Your firm choice is the one you want to go to; your reserve is the one you will go to if you don't meet the grades of your firm choice. Your reserve should obviously be a lower grade offer and is a back up for you.
  • You have until 4th May to make your firm and reserve choices. After this date all your choices will be automatically declined.
  • UCAS key dates can be found here
  • You then need to think about applying for student finance- this can be done once you know where you are applying to.
  • UCAS will send you a reminder to do this, but you can also apply or find out more information here:
  • It will be a good idea to contact your university about accommodation in Halls of residence, although usually Universities will contact you about this themselves
  • Get the grades! Results day is 18th August
  • Good luck, and if any students or parents have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mr Edwards
