Checking your results

A level results day

If you've studied A levels you'll find out on results day whether you have the grades you need to confirm your place at university.

BTEC and Access results are released at different times during July and August. If you've studied these qualifications, you can use Clearing as soon as you have your results.

How to check your results

To find out if you’ve got a place at university, you’ll need to log on to your UCAS Hub and check the status of your offer(s).

The website should update at around 08:30 on results day.

If your status hasn’t changed, you can contact universities directly for confirmation. Call our Clearing Helpline (0808 196 9129) and choose option 2 to confirm your place at the University of Bradford.

You won’t be able to see your actual A level results on UCAS Hub - these will be available from your school or college on the day.

Clearing questions and concerns

Our enquiries team are here to help - request that we give you a call back if you have any queries or concerns about Clearing.

Your offer explained

On results day you’ll find yourself in one of four situations:

  1. You receive an unconditional offer for either your firm or insurance choice
  2. Your offer remains conditional as you're waiting on, for example, GCSE results
  3. You are offered a place on an alternative course
  4. You do not secure a place at university

Unconditional offer for firm or insurance choice

Next steps:

You’re all set to start university in September – your confirmation letter will be available on UCAS Hub in five to seven days.

It’s time to celebrate, find accommodation, get your finances in order and start preparing for this exciting new chapter of your life.

Our New Students site has information on all the things you’ll need to know in the weeks leading up to starting university, as well as details on what to expect when you arrive at the University of Bradford.

Offer remains conditional

If your offer depends on achieving particular GCSE grades your offer will remain conditional until GCSE results day.

Offered a place on an alternative course

Next steps:

If you don't get the grades you needed for your original offer, we may offer you a place on a different course.

We look at the subjects you have studied and the grades you have achieved, and find you a course that we think will interest you - this could be another degree programme or a foundation year course which leads to a degree programme.

If you've been made an alternative offer you can accept it in your UCAS Hub, or if you want more information before making a decision you can call our Clearing helpline.

If you’re unsure about your alternative course, you can explore other courses through Clearing before making a final decision.

Not secured a place at university

Next steps:

You’ll be automatically entered into Clearing. When Clearing opens, you can find available courses at the University of Bradford via UCAS or through our Clearing course search.

If you know how many UCAS points you have, you can use our UCAS points tariff-checker for guidance on which courses you may be able to study.

To apply for a course through Clearing you’ll need your UCAS ID number and your exam results (including GCSEs). If you’re applying by phone it’s also handy to have a pen and paper to make notes.

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to find a course through clearing, you can always resit your exams and re-apply to university for the next academic year.

How many UCAS points do you need?

Our tariff-checker provides guidance on which subjects you may be able to study at Bradford, based on your UCAS points.

Please note that the tariff-checker is for guidance and does not guarantee you a place on any courses.
