Sixth Form Admissions update – September 2020 Entry
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Following the recent announcements regarding the cancellation of this summer’s examinations in the UK, we understand that prospective students may be concerned about how changes to their qualifications might affect their applications for sixth form study in September 2020. However, we would like to reassure those who have applied to the University of Birmingham School’s Sixth Form this year that our application decisions (including Conditional Offers) are still valid.
We do anticipate that we may need to adapt our enrolment processes to support the needs of applicants this summer. However, we will do this in line with guidance from the Department for Education, Ofqual (the examinations regulator) and the awarding exam boards. Applicants are advised that we will communicate information about any changes as soon as is practical, using the email addresses provided on their application.
In the meantime, we would advise all Year 11 pupils to continue to study and to aim to complete the academic syllabus this year, as this subject knowledge and understanding will form a strong foundation for their future studies.
Applications for September 2020 entry are now closed
We are working to process all applications received by the 31st January Deadline and would advise all applicants to check their inboxes regularly for messages from us regarding their application outcome. Any applicant with queries about their application, Conditional Offer or outcome should contact firstname.lastname@example.org (stating their full name, DOB and current school in any communications).
