A-LEVELS: What to do next to meet the grade

Congratulations if you achieved the results you needed.

But if you didn’t, ‘clearing’ and advice from education organisations will be crucial.

When it comes to university, UCAS is the first port of call. Clearing reveals remaining university places and their grade requirements . Details are available at www.ucas.com or by calling specialist advisers on 0871 4680468.

The exam results helpline is on 0808 100 8000.
