External Applicants that currently have an “Unsuccessful” status

Good luck with your results on Thursday 20th August, we hope you have done as well as you wish. 

If your status on the portal is currently showing as “Unsuccessful” and you would like to be on the waiting list, please message us on the portal to let us know so that we can update your status.   This can be done via the “Talk to Us” section (purple speech bubble icon in the bottom right hand corner).  Unfortunately, if you do not request to go on to the Waiting List, you will not be included when this is run.   

If you have met both the minimum and subject specific entry requirements for the subjects you originally applied for, and still wish to do those subjects, then simply upload your results to the portal so that we can confirm that you are eligible for consideration in all subsequent rounds of offers.  You can take a photo of your results and upload this in the documents section at the bottom left of the portal, or scan, save and upload a copy, ensuring that it shows your name and result outcomes clearly.


The deadline for letting us know your results is 12:00 noon on Friday 21st August.

If you failed to meet the subject specific requirements in one (or more) subject(s), but did meet the minimum entry requirements, you can request to change your course choices via a portal message for alternative courses in which you did meet the subject specific entry requirements.  It is essential that you still select 3 subjects to be considered for (or 4 if including Further Maths) – you cannot say “either Sociology or History” for example, you need to pick which one.

We will run our random selection process from the waiting list after 3.00pm on Friday 21st August, in line with our Admissions Policy, and will inform successful students through the portal.  Any further places that become available after 21st August will be allocated as promptly as we can, so do not give up if you don’t get a place in the next round of offers.

If you will be away on holiday when the results are out, I would strongly advise you make arrangements for someone else to act on your behalf to ensure that your results are uploaded. 

If you have difficulties using the portal, please email: Mrs L Shocklidge, our Admissions Officer, on
