The nail-biting wait for results is over for students as they pick up their A Level results today.

This is the final year pupils will be able to go to university before tuition fees soar in 2012.

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), the organisation responsible for managing student applications, is urging pupils to familiarise themselves with the clearing process.

Cllr John Fuller, Bexley Council cabinet member for education, said: “I am looking forward to hearing how our young people have fared. I know how hard our students have worked for how anxious the wait can be.

“I’m confident our schools have equipped them with the skills and knowledge they need to face the world of further education or employment.”

University of Greenwich says it would charge undergraduate students £8,300 a year to study there from September 2012.

This is an increase of £4,925 on the current fee of £3,375.
