Subject grading for General Certificate of Education (GCE) A-Level qualification

GCE Advanced Level – subject grades are A*(a*), A(a), B(b), C(c), D(d), or E(e). E(e) which indicates a pass at Advanced Level, grade A*(a*) being the highest and grade E(e) the lowest.

Due to the pandemic, 2 types of assessments were carried out for June 2021 exam. Students in Malaysia sat for a global time-tabled assessment while in some countries where exams could not be carried out, it was switched to school-assessed grades. However, both categories of students will receive their results at the same time (10 AUGUST 2021) regardless of the nature of assessment.


Application to universities via UCAS

Students' results are made available to universities before they are released to students. Universities will process the results and update the status of their offers via UCAS Track (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Students should check their accounts to see whether they have been accepted into the university of their choice. If their accounts have not been updated, they can contact the university. If they are not satisfied with what is offered or wish to change their chosen course they can go through 'Adjustment" to find a new course/university. Students who are unsuccessful in securing places will have their account status changed to "You are in Clearing" and they will be given a Clearing ID number each. Students can use this ID to find courses at universities with places still available.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has caused a lot of disruptions in the teaching and learning process and it has been a challenging time for parents, students and teachers alike. In such trying times, students need a lot of comfort and understanding from their parents.

As parents, here are some ways you can help alleviate your children's stress:
