GCSE Results Day 2017

What to Expect 

It's GCSE results day on Thursday 24th August and for thousands of young people, the day will be a big day!

If you’ve applied to college this September, you will have been invited to an enrolment session and it’s really important that you bring your results with you so that we can make sure we enrol you on the right course at the right level. 

Whether your results did, or didn’t go to plan, don’t worry. There are plenty of options available. Take a look below.


I studied my GCSEs at ncn – where do I get my results

If you studied your GCSEs with ncn, you’ll be able to collect your results on the morning of Thursday 24th August. We’ll be opening our doors from 9am until 11am and all results will be available to collect from the Adams Building, in the Adams Restaurant and Brasserie. 

You must provide photographic ID, e.g. college ID card, driving licence or passport when you collect your results so that we can confirm who you are. If someone else is collecting your results then you need to ensure that they have written authorisation from you, which they will need to show when they collect your results. They will also be required to provide their own photographic ID.

Any results not collected will be posted to your current address.

I haven’t applied to college – what do I do?

It’s ok if you haven’t applied. We’re enrolling from now until the end of September and we’ve arranged for some daily drop-in sessions, especially for those who haven’t applied to us. You can simply turn up to a session to the campus that is most convenient to you and you’ll be able to speak to an advisor about your options, and enrol on a course. You’ll need to bring a few things with you in order for us to enrol you so take a look at the enrolment pages of the website to find out more. See the drop-in session dates and times too.

I have applied but I didn’t get the results I need for the course I applied for.

Don’t worry and don’t panic. If you can, please still come along to your scheduled enrolment slot. Our enrolment team will review your results with you and help you to understand the options that are now available to you. It may well be that you can enrol on the same course but at a different level or it may be that we can help you to re-sit the GCSEs you need. There are options available to you so please come and talk to us. If you can’t make the enrolment session you’ve been invited to, you can come to a drop-in session or to one of our sessions on 4th or 5th September that have been set aside for applicants who were unable to make their enrolment slot. If you need to, you can chat to an advisor on Live Chat .

I have applied and I did get the results I need for the course I applied for.

That’s great news. Well done. It’s pretty simple for you. You just need to come along to your enrolment session that has been detailed in your invitation to enrolment letter. Remember to bring your results with you. If you can’t make it, try and let us know by giving us a call on 0115 838 0227. You’ll be invited along to one of our replacement enrolment sessions, set aside especially for those that can’t make their original date. These replacement sessions take place on 4th and 5th September at Maid Marian Way, Beeston, Adams Building, Clifton, Clarendon and Basford Hall. 

I’ve done better than I hoped – I want to change my course choice

Wow, congratulations! If you’ve done better than you’d hoped, your grades may well open up more options to you. It’s important therefore that you still come along to your scheduled enrolment slot. It’s at this session that you can speak to an advisor about what your grades could mean in terms of level of study, or study option, such as A Levels. All of that advice will be available on your enrolment day so please come along. If you can’t make it, try and let us know by calling 0115 838 0227. You’ll be invited to a replacement enrolment session which takes place on either the 4th or 5th September at Maid Marian Way, Beeston, Adams Building, Clifton, Clarendon and Basford Hall. You could also come along to a drop-in session if you’d prefer to speak to someone sooner. Take a look at the times and dates of the drop-in sessions.

I’ve applied to college but I can’t make my enrolment session. What do I do?

If you can’t make your enrolment session, that’s ok. We understand that you may be on holiday or unavailable on certain days so that’s why we’ve arranged some replacement sessions. These take place on 4th and 5th September at Maid Marian Way, Beeston, Clifton, Adams Building, Clarendon and Basford Hall. It’s really useful for us to know if you’re not going to be able to make your enrolment appointment. We can tell the team and we can then arrange for you to be invited along to one of the replacement sessions. If you’re struggling to notify us, or are still away on these dates, don’t worry. There are other enrolment sessions available throughout September – view these sessions.

I’m not sure what I want to do or need to do next? 

It’s pretty normal to feel confused and overwhelmed after receiving your results and you may feel like you have no idea what you’d like to do next. At college we’ve got a team of advisors who are on hand to guide and support young people to making the right decisions for them. We’ll help you understand all of the options available, help you to figure out what you’re good at and what you enjoy and which course might best suit you. We’ll support you through the enrolment process too. So the best thing to do is come along to one of the drop-in sessions taking place from 24th August until the end of September.

That’s it. Hope results day goes well for you. We look forward to having you join us in September.
