External Applicants with a Conditional Offer
Good luck with your results on Thursday 20th August, we hope you have got the grades you hoped for.
Remember to upload your results to the portal so we can confirm that you have secured your place. 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.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU BRING YOUR RESULTS INTO NSB BY HAND.
The deadline for uploading your results is 12:00 noon on Friday 21st August.
If you failed to meet the 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. This will, however, mean that you no longer have a Conditional Offer, but will be considered alongside those on the waiting list. 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, otherwise your conditional offer may not be converted to a firm place.
If you have difficulties using the portal, please email Mrs L Shocklidge, our Admissions Officer, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important note: Any students with a Conditional Offer, who do not upload results by 12:00 noon on Friday 21st August, will be moved to the unsuccessful status.
