Preparing for results day

Be prepared for whatever will happen on results day (Thursday 15 August 2019 for A-level, GCE and Advanced Diploma students or Tuesday 6 August 2019 for SQA results in Scotland) by knowing what you will need to do if your results differ from what you expected.

On the day you will either have your place confirmed by your firm or insurance university, or you will go in to Clearing and Adjustment.

You get the results required for your offer

Congratulations. If you applied to us you don’t need to do anything other than celebrate and keep an eye on your emails. We’ll email you to confirm your place and with information on preparing for your arrival.

UCAS Track will be updated to show that your place with us has been confirmed.

If you hold an offer with Southampton (whether we are your firm or insurance choice) and wish to discuss your results with us, you will be able to call our confirmation hotline on 023 8059 7004. The hotline will be open from 8am-6pm on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 August.

You can visit the UCAS advice page for more information on getting your results.

If your results aren’t as expected

It is always best to prepare for the unexpected in case your results are different to what you thought they would be
