What happens on A level results day 2021?

This year is a year like no other and 2021 has presented huge challenges for the A level students getting their A level results on 10 August. Their entire sixth form experience has been disrupted by the covid pandemic and these uncertainties have demanded supreme amounts of resilience and flexibility as they tried to continue their A level studies in the face of adversity.

What are my options with UCAS on A level results day 2021?

If you have been successful with your university application it changes from being an offer which is ‘conditional’ on your A level grades, to an ‘unconditional’ offer – this means you have met the offer requirements or perhaps the university liked your application and has decided to admit you even if you slipped an A level grade.

If you have been unsuccessful with both your university choices, this will show on Track, which will also state that you are in Clearing and give your Clearing number. However bad you feel if you find yourself in Clearing, it’s really important to try to rally yourself and sweep into action – there really is everything to play for if you get moving quickly!

Our College

At Westminster Tutors we take pride in our long-standing reputation for providing top flight tuition, and we take pleasure in giving each of our students the individual attention that allows them to flourish.

We are one of the oldest independent sixth form colleges in the country (established in 1934) and we are immensely proud that Ofsted has recognised our ongoing pursuit of excellence by awarding us “Outstanding” in all six judgements in our most recent inspection.

We provide a warm, friendly and tolerant atmosphere in which all of our students are welcomed and valued. Along with doing this, our core aims are to enable all of our students to achieve examination results that reflect their full potential, and to provide the expert guidance which helps secure them a place at the university of their choice.
In short, we aim to bring out the very best in our students, and to set them on the path to a happy and successful future.

Our Tutors

Since 1934 we have built our reputation on our tutors and they remain our greatest asset today. In their recent review, the Good Schools Guide writes of Westminster Tutors ‘in the quality of its staff it rates as a Titan’.

Virtually no other school can contend with our list of tutors and we attract and retain the best in their fields. Around a third of our teachers are Oxford and Cambridge graduates, another third are working towards or have PhDs, and almost all have furthered their studies to Masters level as well as having 2:1 or first class undergraduate degrees from a Russell Group university.

It is our policy to offer a balance of the brightest and best graduates from the top universities with highly qualified teachers who have many years of experience. This enables us to make a personal match for each student, taking into account their academic goals and the teaching approach which will bring out the best in them.

Our Teaching Approach

What makes Westminster Tutors really special is that we remain true to our tutorial college origins, either teaching one-to-one or in very small groups of two or three students.

We also offer an exceptional degree of flexibility in what we teach.  All A level  exam boards are taught and, with the guidance of their tutors, students are able to select the syllabus and options that best matches their abilities and interests.

For students joining us midway through a course or for A level retakes  we offer a seamless transition continuing them on the same syllabus, and we never put students studying different exam boards or units in the same group.

Our Success

Here are just a few of the things that make us a truly outstanding college:

  • In 2020 our A Level results were 68% A*-A grade and 92% A*-B grade
  • In 2020 72% placed at Russell Group unis and 88% to their first choice
  • In 2020 our A level retake students improved by 2.4 grades on average
  • Westminster Tutors is in the DFE top 20 schools for A level progress
  • Westminster Tutors is in the DFE top 100 schools for A level results


"We wanted to extend our sincere thanks for all your continuous support this year. Your diligence and commitment has been crittcal for James and it has far exceeded our expectations. Going from a BCD to an A*A*A and being offered a place to study at UCL is an amazing achievement! James has matured through this process and we couldn't be prouder of his results."

I cannot thank you enough! Arif and I are over the moon! Such a different story to when we met you last year, with Arif having given up. He is thrilled with his grades.
