UCAS News Update
21 April 2020
The Government has now confirmed that A level results day will take place on the originally planned day - Thursday 13 August 2020.
Governments across the UK have also asked universities and colleges to temporarily stop making unconditional offers to students who are yet to receive their results. For reference, please see the latest letter from Michelle Donelan MP, Universities Minister, sent to universities and colleges in England.
With these announcements in mind, UCAS have made the decision to make further changes to upcoming deadlines. This will give you more time to make decisions on your offers. There is now only one undergraduate decision deadline for applicants who have received all of their decisions from universities and colleges by 4 June. You will now therefore need to reply to any offers by 18:00 (UK time) on 18 June 2020.
It’s important you understand the different types of offers, and make the right decision for your future. Given the current circumstances, we know that for some of you this decision may be harder than expected. Please remember that there are many resources available online to help you, including:
- University and college virtual open days on ucas.com
- The chance to speak to current undergraduates through Unibuddy on ucas.com – those who have already experienced student life and the courses you are applying for.
For those of you who need it, please be reassured that Clearing will be available as planned on 6 July.
