Admissions FAQs

I was unsuccessful in securing a place at Warwick when I received my original A level results on 13 August. If my teacher-assessed grades are higher, will I be given a place?

If the Centre Assessment Grades (CAGs) you are now officially awarded mean that you meet your original conditions of entry (as specified in your offer letter), we will honour our offer and are pleased to confirm your place at Warwick.

The exam boards will share the updated A level grades with us officially via UCAS This means you don't need to take any further action at this time and there's no need to contact us.

Specific timings are yet to be confirmed, but we hope to receive grades during the week beginning 24 August. We are working closely with UCAS and will keep you updated.

If your school lets you know what your CAGs are, you still don’t need to do anything further at this point. We will only process grades shared with us from UCAS.


Now I have my CAGSs will my place be confirmed based on the lower grades I saw advertised in Clearing?

No, we will confirm any place based on the grades advertised in main scheme, and not the grades we advertised in Clearing.


I wanted to come to Warwick but I now have a place elsewhere, what should I do?

Above all, we would encourage you to take some time and fully assess all your options before making a final decision. If you need further information in order to make that decision, you can call our Undergraduate Admissions Helpline on +44 (0)2476 533 544.


I have been accepted to Warwick. Will I still be able to join?

If you have received an offer and have accepted your place at Warwick, nothing changes. We will honour your offer. We look forward to welcoming you to campus in the autumn.


I was made an offer through Clearing. Does this still stand?

If you applied to us through Clearing last week, and have been accepted on UCAS Track, this will still stand. We look forward to welcoming you to campus in the autumn.


I didn’t originally apply to Warwick. My CAG grades are higher than my previous grades, so can I still apply through Clearing?

Unfortunately, we do not have any courses available through Clearing.


When will I find out what my Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) are? When will you get them from UCAS? When will I hear back from you?

Along with all other universities, we anticipate receiving the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) for all of our offer holders from UCAS later today (20 August).


I was made an offer that was not confirmed following the initial release of results or through updated results and now plan to sit examinations in Autumn 2020 – do I have to reapply?

If an applicant’s grades improve as a result of sitting examinations this autumn and that improvement means they meet or exceed the full conditions of their offer with us, then we will offer them a place on their course starting in 2021. Students should notify the University by no later than 31 August 2020 if they intend to take the autumn 2020 examinations.


I feel quite overwhelmed by all that’s happened, where can I go for support?

Our Undergraduate Admissions helpline is open daily from 9am-5pm; you can call it and discuss your options with our team of expert advisors on +44 (0)2476 533 544.
