A Level Results Day 2019
On Thursday 15 August, Newcastle College and Stafford College will open its doors to students collecting results and will have knowledgeable staff on hand throughout the day to give advice and guidance. Whichever campus you're at, rest assured we've got you covered.
Newcastle Campus: A Level results will be issued at 9.00am outside the LRC near to Student Services. The campus will be open from 8am.
Stafford Campus: A Level results will be issued at 9.30am in the Science & Technology Centre in SG03. The campus will be open from 8.30am.
Always check UCAS Track for the most up to date information about your course offers. Do not withdraw or accept any offers if you are unsure and make panicked or rushed decisions. Going to university is a huge step and although you don’t want any unnecessary delays, you do have time to think, reflect and visit institutions to make sure they are right for you. If in doubt on the day, speak to a member of staff.
