A message from our Chair Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli: Congratulations to A-level students

13 August 2020

Prof Sir Anton Muscatelli, Chair of the Russell Group and Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow, said: 

“Congratulations to all students on their hard-earned A-level results and good luck to everyone who is planning their next steps, whether that is at university, college, an apprenticeship or the world of work.  

“Our message to those who may have missed their grades is not to panic and to contact their first-choice universities to discuss their options. It is a unique and unprecedented results season and our universities are being as flexible as possible with admissions. They are taking a range of factors into account to ensure no student, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, are unfairly affected and can benefit from the world-class higher education offered by Russell Group universities.

“Students receiving their results this summer have dealt admirably with an unprecedented set of circumstances and should be very proud of what they have achieved. Our universities are ready to welcome them and are working hard to provide the safest and best possible experience for every student.”
