A quick note about A level exam cancellations and what it means for you
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, A level exams in 2020 have been cancelled, but please don't worry. We're not going anywhere and you'll still be getting your A level and other exam results in the summer.
Right now, we're working with everyone involved – including UCAS, exam boards and the Government – to figure out how the admissions process will work for students who want to start in autumn 2020.
We'll work out a solution and once the situation becomes clearer, we'll be as excited as ever to welcome you to the University.
So for now, all you need to focus on is keeping up your hand hygiene and staying safe.
