If you get better grades than expected, you might be interested in finding a course with a higher entry tariff than your existing offers.

How Adjustment works

On A-level results day, places on courses can become available because other applicants miss their offers or choose to swap for something else.

Adjustment allows you to see what's available at a higher tariff and, if you wish, to switch to a new course.

Any conditional or unconditional offers you've accepted will still be valid if you look for options through Adjustment. You'll be able to talk with our teams before making a decision.
