You may have unanswered questions about when A-Level results come out, and how you can receive your results. Has this been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, or will the timeline for results being handed out remain the same? This article is intended to give you a brief overview of when to expect your A-Level results, as well as answer any other related questions you may have.
In short, you will have one results day, which will be on the 2nd Thursday of August. Your sixth form college will contact you with information about results day, so keep an eye out for any emails. You can receive results in person, online or by post. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, your results day may differ slightly to previous years in terms of how results are given out (it is now likely to be online), but the timeline should remain the same.
If you would like some more information on this topic, I would recommend that you read the rest of this article. Although the summary can be found above, the article goes in to more depth, and it is useful to know exactly when results day is and how it works to calm any nerves you may have leading up to it!
Will COVID-19 Affect When A-Level Results Come Out?
The date of A-Level results day should not be affected by COVID-19. Although exams have been cancelled for 2021, the day that you receive your results should not be altered. This means that it will occur on the 2nd Thursday of August.
If there are any changes to the date on which you will receive your results, it will be very well publicised, and your sixth form will directly contact you to let you know. It is very important that you keep up to date with emails from your school and the news!
If you are interested in knowing when universities receive your A-Level results and how this compares to the date of your results day, you may also be interested in having a read of this useful article, which should answer any questions you might have.
How Do You Receive Your A-Level Results?
Results day may be coming around for you soon, and perhaps you are wondering how you will receive your A-Level results. There are a number of different ways that you can receive your A-Level results. These include:
- In person, from your sixth form college
- Through the post
Ordinarily, you would be most likely to receive your A-Level results from your institution in person. However, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be more likely to receive them online.
The way that you will receive your results can vary between colleges. So, (again) you should make sure that you keep up to date with the information that your college provides you with via email.
Can You Receive Your A-Level Results After Results Day?
You may be wondering if you can find out your results after results day, if this is not a convenient date for you. For the most part, you will find that it may not be possible for you to collect your results in person from your college on a different day to results day. However, there are some ways that you may be able to find out your results after this date has passed.
If you are unable to collect your results for any reason from your college, it is important that you contact them as soon as you can, and find out what alternative options they are able to provide you with. Most colleges will be able to email your results to you, and this would be the best way to get your results if you cannot attend in person on results day.
Alternatively, you can authorise a friend or family member to pick up your results on your behalf. Make sure that you talk to your sixth form college about this, but usually you must just let them know and provide written confirmation that you give your permission for your results to be given to them.
Both of these ways of receiving your results mean that yes, technically, you can get your results after results day, but both options mean that results will still be provided to you on results day itself.
