The Universities Minister, Michelle Donelan MP, has written to all Vice-Chancellors asking them to hold places for students who are appealing their A level results, ahead of results day later this week.
In her letter, she urges universities to be flexible in their admissions process, and to hold places for students appealing their grades until they receive the outcome of their appeal, where possible. The Minister has encouraged universities to consider a wide range of evidence when admitting students to their selected courses. She made clear that exam boards have committed to doing everything possible to resolve appeals for affected candidates by 7 September.
