What will the 2023 AQA A-Level grade boundaries be?

Welcome to our 2023 AQA A-Level grade boundaries feature.

17 August was the date that the 2023 A-level results were released. The UCAS Clearing procedure, open between 5 July to 17 October is where A-Level students track the status of their university applications.

However, Ucas Track does not display the precise A-level grades; this information must be obtained directly from your school or college. Nevertheless, a positive response from your preferred university within Ucas Track often provides a strong indication of your attained grades. Ucas Track typically becomes accessible between 8 am and 8:30 am on results day, following a period of temporary closure in the preceding days.
