Always check UCAS Track even if your results aren’t quite what you wanted. If you’re results aren’t a million miles away from your conditional offer, you may still have been accepted onto your chosen course.
Alternatively, if you have conditional offers for The Sheffield College which are showing as unsuccessful, don't abandon all hope. Please ring us on 0114 260 2600.
If your offer is still showing as conditional, or nothing has changed, please also contact us immediately.
Congratulations will be in order! If you're not accepted by your first-choice university but do meet the entry requirements for your insurance choice, UCAS Track will update the status of your offer to unconditional.
Your place at your insurance choice will be confirmed. If your insurance choice was The Sheffield College we will be in touch with more information. No need to call us as lines will be busy for the Clearing process; we'll contact you!
If you are unsuccessful and not accepted on to the study programme you’ve applied for or you turn down your insurance choice offer, you can apply for other courses through Clearing on UCAS. Clearing will be open immediately on results day and will list our university level courses which have vacancies.
