A Level Results Day 2021: How are students feeling ahead of receiving their results?

HE Thinking, Youth Videos | 09 Aug 2021


This year's A Level students are feeling more confident ahead of Results Day. They face greater clarity around the grading system compared to last year, and they're ready to move forward with the next steps of applying to university. But, just how confident are they really feeling in the greater scheme of things - will Covid grades hold the same value and what support are they looking for from HE professionals? 

Throughout this year's Results Day, we'll be tracking the opinions, attitudes and behaviours of year 13 students, as they receive their all-important A Levels. 

We'll be finding out what the applicant mindset is at every stage of their journey this summer, including: how perceptions have changed (particularly around feelings on Covid grades and the impact on future employability); what will influence their decisions; and what feelings they have towards Clearing. We'll also be tracking the response from universities, revealing the key messages from this year's Clearing comms (keep an eye out for our upcoming blog if you want to find out what your competitors have been up to).

To start, we hear from the students who are ready and waiting to receive their results tomorrow. They tell us about their feelings, worries and what information they're expecting to receive from universities tomorrow.
