Following the summer exams each year, we send UCAS the exam results. We also send any updated results to UCAS daily until the review of results submission window closes. If your school or college applies for a post-results service then UCAS will receive any updated results.
These results are then sent to your chosen university or college. It can take up to 48 hours for updated results to be received by universities, so it’s always a good idea to make sure your university or college choice is kept up to date.
To check if your qualification is one of those forwarded to UCAS, please visit the UCAS website. If your qualification is not listed, you’ll need to send your results to your chosen establishment. They will check whether you meet the conditions of your offer and then let UCAS know if you've been accepted.
If you do not receive a result for a Cambridge Technicals qualification (because you did not achieve enough units or you were resitting but did not improve your overall result), no result will be sent to UCAS. Please contact your university or college to let them know. If you want to use clearing, they will need to release you from your offer.
