Are your exam results undergoing a review but application deadlines are upon you? Here are a few tips to help you navigate the college/university admissions process successfully.
Review the admission requirements for both the school(s) and program(s) that you are applying to. This is very important. Depending on your current results, being knowledgeable of the requirements would allow you to guage whether your current results are still within range of the required grades for admission.
Check to see whether there is an alternate pathway for admission into the school and program of your choice in the event that you do not meet the grade requirement. Many institutions offer pathway programs which allow students who do not meet direct entry requirement to still matriculate.
For early admission deadlines - should the institution(s) you are applying to have a deadline that may come before you receive the result of your grade review, submit your current results along with your school transcripts and any other required supporting documents. Should there be a section that allows you to insert a comment regarding your application, you may use this to discuss the situation you have with your current exam results.
Always ensure that among your school and program choices, that you include a safety option which still allows you to matriculate in the event that there is a change in your circumstances (E.g., finances, grades, personal interests etc.).
Should you have any difficulty, it is recommended that you speak with a professional educational advisor/consultant for further assistance and guidance.
