Getting to uni during covid-19

Apr 2020

Will the current coronavirus situation delay my progression to university?

CORONAVIRUS GOING TO UNI OFFERS
Answer

There’s no evidence to suggest your student journey will be interrupted this year. All universities, colleges and education organisations are working to ensure that everyone is able to progress to the next stage of their studies. Exam boards across the country and UCAS are planning ways to ensure as fair an assessment of students and exam results as possible. Universities already know a lot about their potential students, having already read personal statements and references, as well as being sent predicted grades, so there’s no reason this pandemic should delay or hinder your progression to university.
