The University of Sunderland welcomes the clarification provided by the government that A-level and GCSE results will revert to teacher-assessed grades based on coursework and mock exams.
The University will honour all offers confirmed since the initial A-level results were announced last week. In addition, we will re-evaluate candidates who had been adversely affected by having their grades moderated in line with the algorithm.
The University has already adopted a very flexible approach to candidates who felt their moderated grades did not reflect their predicted achievements. This also applies to applicants who have had to re-sit GCSEs in Maths or English as part of admission requirements.
We advise any applicant who wishes to have their eligibility reviewed in the wake of this new approach to contact us on our Helpline 0191 515 3000 or for more information visit www.sunderland.ac.uk/clearing/
Our Helpline staff will be here tonight - Monday - until 7pm. The helpline will reopen on Tuesday morning at 9am.
