The countdown is on for Exam Results Day. We know waiting can feel like agony especially if you need certain results to get your place at University.
Keep calm and don’t panic. Whatever happens with your exam results, there’s still going to be plenty of options for you.
Clearing is now a very common way of applying to university – last year over 64,300 UK students obtained places through Clearing!
Students in Scotland get their SQA results on Tuesday 4 August 2020.
A-levels results day is Thursday 13 August 2020.
For those in Scotland doing SQA Highers your Scottish Qualification Certificate (SQC) will arrive by first class post on Tuesday 4 August 2020. If you activated your MySQA account you'll get your results by e-mail and/or text.
If you've done A-levels you’ll receive your results from your school or college.
As soon as you’ve got your results you can log into UCAS track from 8am to see the status of your offers. It’s important you don’t just assume you’ve automatically lost your place if you haven’t achieved all conditions of your firm or insurance offer.
UCAS track will also tell you if you’re eligible to go into Clearing. You can then start searching for available university places.
Call your shortlisted universities as soon as you know your results. We want to speak to you directly so please don’t get someone else to call on your behalf unless you’ve given them nominated access.
How to get the best out of your phone call:
If you get an offer over the phone, Congratulations!!
You’ll be able to go onto UCAS track to formally accept the offer. You can then start an application for accommodation as well as student funding.
If you’ve met and exceeded conditions for your conditional firm choice, you could potentially use UCAS Adjustment to find a course at another university with higher entry requirements. See how you can apply to the University of Stirling through UCAS Adjustment.
Hear from some of our students who found coming to the University of Stirling through Clearing to be a simple, easy process and one of the best decisions they've made.
