Student sentiment decks

Our Student Sentiment Updates provide a snapshot of the conversations young people are having on The Student Room. From these updates, you can read students’ own accounts of their thoughts, worries and experiences.

Latest deck: 7 August – 1 September 2023

Key insights from this deck include:

  • Before Results: Nerves ran high for student in lead up to Results Day and 25% of poll respondents were expecting to use Clearing due to missing their required results.
  • Results: 57% of A-Level (and equivalent) students had grades lower than expected, GCSE (and equivalent students) seemed to be more of a mix with 63% achieving what they expected or better.
  • Looking ahead: Students voted university league tables as the top decision maker in uni choice but our community conversations say otherwise.
