Worried about your grades

Take a look at your options if you are not sure you will be awarded the right grades to join the degree programme you planned.

Primary page content

The lead up to the announcement of A-levels, or other exam results, is often an anxious time, but this year has been more worrying than ever for many people. Clearing can give you opportunities you may not have considered before. Please chat to us online if you want to talk about your circumstances.

“The person who I was talking to during Clearing was so relaxing, so calming. He took time with me and told me my future options.”
Kamal, BSc Computer Science

How it works

Explore the courses we have on offer. You can get in touch with us now if you know you want to change your plans and come to Goldsmiths.

Otherwise, when you get your results (13 August for A-levels), if you are not awarded the right marks to meet your conditional offer elsewhere, take a look at the courses we have on offer. 

We would also advise you to look at the Life on Campus section of our website and watch some of our videos about what makes Goldsmiths special on YouTube to see if it is the right choice of university for you.

Consider a foundation year

Goldsmiths offers degrees with an additional foundational year. These four-year degrees can be an ideal choice for students who don’t feel quite ready to begin an undergraduate programme yet and want to consolidate their knowledge for an academic year. They are also suited to mature students looking to return to education. Take a look at our four-year degrees in Media & Communications, ComputingPsychology, English, History and Anthropology.
