The Recorder wishes good luck to all the borough’s A-level students discovering their results this morning.

Our reporters are out to hear your stories so come and say hello if you spot them.

Keep track of the latest of today’s news by clicking here or follow us on Twitter using the hashtag #RedbridgeResults.

Once you’ve opened your results, you’ll discover what you need to do next.

On Track – the name of UCAS’ online tracking system - you’ll be able to reply to your offer and make amendments like changing your email address.

Your confirmation letter will appear within five to seven days after your place is confirmed.

If you exceeded your conditional offer, or if you missed out - don’t fear, there are plenty of options for you.

Tens of thousands of last-minute degree places are still available, as universities scramble to attract students still searching for a course.

As of Wednesday morning, the day before clearing opens, there were more than 27,000 courses listed on the Ucas clearing website, according to a Press Association survey.

Among the 24 Russell Group institutions alone, those universities considered among the best in the country, two thirds (16) had at least one course listed on the Ucas site, with 4,820 courses potentially having places on offer.

If you’ve exceeded your grade, check out what is available through Ucas Adjustment’s service.

It’s entirely optional, and a lot of competitive courses will be full – but other applicants might have missed their conditions or swapped a course too, so it could be worth seeing what’s available.

Email ralph.blackburn@archant.co.uk with all your results, stories and future plans.
