As A-Level results day fast approaches, it's vital to be fully prepared and know what to expect ahead of time, especially for those wishing to head off to university.

This year is expected to be the most competitive ever after record numbers of students applied or deferred places for this autumn.

Many students and their families have been left anxious after a report last week revealed around 60,000 A-Level students could miss out on their top university spot, in part due to 80,000 fewer top grades being handed out than in the previous two years.

But higher education organisations have stressed the vast majority of students will receive their desired places.

So what do you need to know and what should you expect from results day 2022? 

When is A-Level results day? 

Students who sat their A-Level exams this summer will be receiving their results tomorrow, August 17

A-Level results day for 2022 is on Thursday, August 18. Students will begin receiving their grades in the morning, usually going into their school or college in person.

They will be able to check their UCAS accounts to see if they have made their top university choice from early in the morning too, but this will not tell them what grades they have received.

What time are A-Level results released?

This can vary from between exam centres (where students sat their A-Level exams, such as schools, colleges and other education settings).

Exam boards should release all results at 8am on August 18. Most schools and colleges open for students to collect their grades at 8am or very shortly afterwards, and will often stay open for most of the day.

There is no requirement to arrive at 8am on the dot if you do not wish to.

What time will UCAS Track update?

The UCAS online portal, also known as UCAS Track, should update when results are released at 8am. If you wish, you can check whether you have made your university place before going to get your results. 

How will I receive my A-Level results?

Most students will receive their results on paper when they attend their school or college. Typically, teachers will provide each student with a named envelope, which means you can open them at school or take them somewhere private.

This also means parents or guardians should be able to collect results for you, should you be unable to do so.

What happens if I am away for A-Level results day?

But what do you do if you are not around to go to your school on A-Level results day? Don't panic.

Whether you are at home, elsewhere in the UK or even abroad, you should still be able to receive your results.

If you have already told your school you will not be able to come in for results day, they may have already arranged to phone you. But if not, simply phone on the day itself, and a member of staff should be able to tell you your grades.
