EDUCATION chiefs at Bournemouth University (BU) have said they are doing "everything we can" to help potential students following the government's U-turn on A-level results.

As reported, students will now be awarded centre-assessed grades (CAG) complied by their teachers.

A statement from BU said the establishment is still making offers for this year subject to availability.

Detailing the situation, the statement added: "If your circumstances have changed as a result of Centre-Assessed Grading, please give us a call on 01202 966777 and we can talk about your options with you.

"If you do know your Centre-Assessed Grades and you meet our entry requirements we will be able to make you an offer.

"If you don’t know your Centre-Assessed Grades, and would like to consider Bournemouth University, please contact us and we will hold a place for you. The place will be held for you until our formal receipt of your Centre-Assessed Grades.

"If we are holding a place for you pending the outcome of an appeal, then please don’t worry, as these arrangements still stand. We will contact you as soon as possible to discuss if your circumstances have changed as a result of Centre Assessed Grades."

Anyone with other queries, or would like to talk to someone at BU about their options, should call 01202 966777 or visit
