Applicant FAQs

Our Response to the government’s announcement on A level results
We understand this is a very difficult and confusing time.
Following Ofqual’s announcement we would like to reassure you that if you have a confirmed place with us, we will honour that place, even if your grades change as a result of ‘centre assessed grades’. Centre assessed grades are grades your school or college estimated was the grade you would most likely have achieved in your exam - or the moderated grade, whichever is higher. The start of term is Monday 21 September and we look forward to seeing you.
If you applied to Royal Holloway and we contacted you to advise you that you did not meet our entry requirements and you are still interested in a place with us, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us when you receive your centre assessed grades.
