Concession is extended for potential students awaiting GCSE results

05 June 2009

Under a concession agreed by the UK Border Agency for this year only, students applying to study for A-Levels in the United Kingdom are allowed to make a visa application based on a conditional offer from their education provider. This concession, which only applies to applications made overseas, is in recognition of the fact that GCSE results are not released until the end of August while some courses begin in early September.

The Home Office has now agreed to extend this concession to cover all students waiting for GCSE results who are going on to study A-Level equivalent courses, such as Higher Diplomas, in the United Kingdom.

The applicant will still be required to submit an unconditional offer as soon as it is received, and the visa will only be issued on this basis.
