Advice for 2020 Undergraduate Offer Holders

We’re here to help you with advice and guidance following this year’s A Level / IB and BTEC grading process.

Visit the Student Enquiries knowledge base for student information on COVID-19.

What you need to know

Read our quick summary and use the FAQs for answers to your specific questions:

If your Centre Assessed Grades are lower than your Ofqual grades and you have a place with us, your offer is still valid, and we look forward to welcoming you in September. You do not need to contact us.

If you’ve been accepted at Newcastle University through Clearing, your Clearing offer still stands regardless of your Centre Assessed Grades. You do not need to contact us.

If your Centre Assessed Grades mean you now meet the conditions of your original offer we will honour your place. Where this is not possible for 2020, we will guarantee a deferred place for next year. You will need to contact us and we will take you through what you need to do next.

If you are appealing your Centre Assessed Grades your school will advise you on the process and you will need to let us know the outcome of your appeal. Please complete this form to let us know that you are appealing. Please do complete this form even if you have already emailed us about an appeal in order to confirm that it is an appeal against your Centre Assessed Grades that you are making.

We have prepared detailed FAQs to help you to access the advice that applies to your situation.  Please do take the time to have a careful read through these as they contain a lot of information which could be relevant to you.

Medicine and Dentistry

Students hoping to study medicine this year are in a uniquely difficult situation. Unlike the majority of university courses, medicine has tightly restricted entry numbers which are determined by Government.

We are awaiting guidance from government on what to do next and are very sorry for the uncertainty for students who are in this situation. We will update our FAQs as soon as we find out more.
