Getting exam results for your conditional undergraduate offer

If you have a conditional offer that depends on your exam results, find out what you need to do when you receive your results.

Find out when you'll get your results

If you are taking A level, International Baccalaureate or SQA Higher exams, you can find your results day in the UCAS list of key dates.

If you are taking a different exam, you should check with your teacher or your awarding body to find out when you get your results.

If you are an A level student, find out more about what to do on results day from UCAS.

Check if you need to send us your results

Some exam boards provide your results directly to UCAS, which passes them on to the University. This usually includes A level, BTEC and International Baccalaureate results. Once we receive your results from UCAS, we can make a decision about your conditional offer.

Your school or college will need to make sure permission for your results to be shared has been given to your exam boards

If your offer includes other qualifications, especially international qualifications, you might need to send them to us directly. You should do this by uploading your certificates to our undergraduate Application Tracker as soon as possible. If you have taken a separate English language qualification, you will also need to upload a copy of these results even if you already had your English language qualification when you first applied to us.

Find out if you need to send your results to us.

If you have met your offer

Check UCAS Hub and our undergraduate Application Tracker for the latest information about your place.

If UCAS has sent us your results, we'll confirm your place through the UCAS Hub.

If you need to send your results directly to us, we'll confirm your place once we've received proof of your qualifications. We will normally require an official certificate in order to confirm your results. If you need a visa to study in UK, we will also need a certified translation if your results are not in English.

Once we confirm your place, you don't need to do anything else on the UCAS Hub.

When we have confirmed your place at Bath you can apply for accommodation if you have not already done so.

If Bath is your insurance offer

If you are accepted by your firm choice, your insurance offer from Bath will automatically be cancelled.

If you haven't met the terms of your firm offer, but you have met your insurance offer for Bath, you need to check whether your firm choice university has confirmed your place.

If your firm choice does not confirm your place, you will be able to take up your place at Bath. UCAS will confirm your place at Bath after your firm choice confirms that your application with them has been unsuccessful.

When we have confirmed your insurance place at Bath, you can apply for accommodation.

If you're an international student

When we have confirmed your place, you will probably need to apply for a student visa to study in the UK.

Your next step is to get a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number so you can apply for a visa. We will contact you directly regarding a CAS once your place has been confirmed. If you are under the age of 18 when applying to study at the University of Bath, there are some supplementary documents you will need to provide to the University. We will be in touch if this applies to you to let you know what we need.

Deferring your place until the next year

If you have your place confirmed but don't want to start your course until the next academic year, you can request to defer your place.

You do not need to give us a reason for your choice for your request to be successful. If there is a reason we are not able to defer your place, we may ask you to reapply for the next year instead.

Email with:

  • your UCAS number
  • your name
  • the course you have a place on
  • the reasons why you want to defer

If you have not met your offer

Check UCAS Hub and our undergraduate Application Tracker for the latest information about your place.

If you don't get the grades your offer requires, we may still confirm your place if you have narrowly missed your offer and there is still room on the course.

If you don't get a place at your firm or insurance university, you can try to find a place on another course through UCAS Clearing.

If you are an A level student and need to speak to us on results day, you can call us on 01225 976833 from 8:00am on Thursday 17 August.

Remarks and appeals

Our deadline for considering remarks and appeals is 6 September 2023. We may consider remarks and appeals after this date, but if you are successful we may offer you a deferred place for the next academic year.

If you have requested a remark for your exams, you must email with:

  • your UCAS ID number
  • details of the subjects which you've requested a remark for
  • the grades you expect to get in these subjects

Once you notify us, we will contact you with instructions and guidance for what to do next.

If you are considering appealing a grade you may be interested in the Joint Council for Qualifications guide 'What to do if you think there has been an error in your grading'.

What happens next

When your place is confirmed, we'll contact you by email about registering with the University and preparing to start your studies.
