The UCAS website also has lots of resources that are useful to offer holders and we have listed some you might want to have a look at:

I want to appeal the grades I have received, what is the next step?

If you wish to appeal the grades your school, college or awarding body has made, please contact them directly for further guidance and support. We would also ask you to complete our form so we have a record of your decision to appeal your grades. Please be aware that the deadline for the University to receive any revised grades is 31st August 2021 and we regret that this deadline cannot be extended. Appeals which are successful after this date will be considered for deferred entry in 2022.

If you are waiting for the results of a remark and are not holding an offer at any university or college, we would strongly recommend that you look for suitable opportunities in Clearing. By securing a place through Clearing you will have an alternative to fall back on should your appeal be unsuccessful.

Please note that UCAS do not alert us to the fact that an applicant’s results have changed following a re-mark, so if you do meet the terms of your offer after a re-mark you should contact us directly with your new result as soon as you have it.

I haven't got the grades I needed, what happens now?

If we have informed you that we are unable to confirm your place we are very sorry to have had to disappoint you. This year we have only been able to accept applicants who have met all of their offer conditions in full. We regret that we are unable to revisit any of these decisions which are final. If you believe we have made an error in our decision, please fill out our enquiry form.

I have some missing results, what should I do?

The deadline for meeting all the conditions of your offer, including sending us any missing results, is 31 August. After this date we cannot guarantee that we will still be able to accept you on to the course since places may no longer be available. Should we be unable to accept you after this deadline we can offer you a place for deferred entry instead.

Science Practical Grades

The science practical endorsement for English A levels this year has been awarded within the teacher assessed grades. If it was a requirement of your offer to pass the science practical, then this will have been taken into consideration in our decision on your application. 

A note for private candidates:

If the exam centre who provided your assessed grade was not able to make an assessment to award the practical endorsement meaning that you were unable to pass this you may email us at admissions@contacts.bham.ac.uk so that we can take this situation in to account. You will need to provide supporting information from the exam centre.

I want to sit the autumn exams, can I defer my place for 2022?

If you want to sit the autumn exams you will need to reapply for study with us for a September 2022 start. We are unable to allow you to defer a place of study as you currently need to be an unconditional firm offer holder to defer your place of study.
