You have your results, what’s next?

If your results haven’t given you the entry requirements for your university course, there’s still lots of options including accepting your insurance offer or applying for Clearing vacancies via UCAS.

On the other hand, if your results are better than predicted, you can still accept your firm offer or you may wish to consider UCAS Adjustment, a service that allows to apply for university courses with higher entry requirements which still have places available.
