13 August 2010
This year’s A-level results will be released on Thursday 19 August. These results will determine university places for most Jersey sixth formers.
Although the number of Jersey students applying to go to university is similar to that in 2009, applications from UK students have increased by more than 16% this year.
With the government reducing its funding to universities, gaining a place has become even more competitive and it will be more important than ever for local students to act promptly when they get their results.
Schools, Highlands College and Careers Jersey will be available on the day to help students.
Once students have a definite offer of a place at university, if they have applied for a student grant they should complete and return the FE7 notification form to the Student Finance Office along with:
- copies of their A-level or BTEC results
- a copy of the unconditional offer letter from the institute
