I'm asking because dd has already been given her grade at college as it's an arts subject and is assessed internally, and it meets her requirements for uni place. Will they wait until A level results day to update UCAS?
It's the exam board not the college that send results to UCAS, and yes although they'll send the marks as soon as they're confirmed (have they been moderated?) the university can't do anything until A level results day.
We didn’t know what to do either, DS had just finished an Art Foundation Diploma, having already done A’levels previously.. We sent a copy of the paperwork he was given in college electronically to the admissions office at his firm choice uni (having already spoken to them on livechat) and the uni communicated with UCAS and it was all confirmed to him very quickly by UCAS that he would be starting in September.
