When will the A-Level results be released? The embargo on UCAS results begins TODAY.
The day of A-LEVEL results is one of the most nerve-wracking days in any young adult’s life, especially after the government-induced pandemonium in 2020. When will the A-level results be released?
This summer, A-level results will determine the next crucial chapter in many young people’s life. Following last year’s failure to preserve projected grades, most people will be apprehensive and anxious about this year’s event. But, with less than a week to go, the process of calculating grades has changed, and the wait is nearly over.
Every year, after students’ final exams, A-level results are released in mid-summer.
They get to take a few weeks off for their summer vacation before the deadline approaches.
The embargo on the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is lifted on Tuesday, August 10 in 2021.
UCAS will make results available to universities and colleges starting today, August 4.
However, they must adhere to the organization’s strict embargo policies.
The embargo restricts educational institutions from declaring grades. It applies to the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
College and university faculty and staff are not permitted to discuss grades with advisers or students.
The ban will also apply to UCAS track and its adviser portal.
Universities and other higher education institutions will use this time to plan and make final choices before the announcement on August 10.
On August 10, the embargo will be lifted, and results will be available at 8.30 a.m.
From from point forward, students’ results will be available on the UCAS Track page.
Last year, the government was roundly chastised for using Ofqual’s grade standardisation system to arbitrate results.
Students who received A-level results that did not match their projections were denied university admissions as a result of the decision.
The Department of Education looks to have learnt from its blunder in 2021.
Only their expected grades will count this year, so teachers will determine how their kids perform.
They will use school assessments, such as in-class quizzes, mock or otherwise, and coursework, to determine final grades.
All secondary school grades granted this year, including GCSE and AS levels, are affected by the approach.
Any anticipated grades will need to be signed off on by department heads and headteachers.
