If you are happy with the place you currently have confirmed, or if you’ve decided not to go to university this year, you do not need to do anything.

If your revised grades do not meet the terms of your original offer, we will not be able to offer you a place. You should have received an email to confirm our decision.

If we can't offer you a place

If our final decision is that you are unsuccessful, we cannot review it unless there has been a genuine mistake.

If you meet or exceed the conditions of your insurance offer, you should speak to your insurance university.

If you do not have a confirmed place at either your firm or insurance choice you will be able to enter Clearing. We do not have any vacancies through Clearing at Bristol, but check if other universities do via UCAS.

You can reapply for 2021 and this will be treated as a fresh application. Check whether re-sits are accepted on the admissions statement.
