Clearing is here – don’t panic, be excited!

Clearing is here – don’t panic, be excited!

Changed your mind? Results unexpected? Want more options? That’s what clearing is for.
First up, UCAS is amazing and will help you find the university and course which is right for you. UCAS helped nearly 60,000 students last year, so you’re not alone! No panic decisions or taking the first opportunity that comes your way, make sure you’re happy (no, ecstatic!) with your choice.

UCAS will be on hand to help, and this video is well worth a watch: https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/results-confirmation-and-clearing/what-clearing

Get prepped.

  • If you aren’t feeling confident that you’ll meet the grades you need, then spend some time researching other universities and their courses with lower grade requirements. Preparing a backup plan can help you feel organised ahead of results day.
  • Ensure you have all your necessary documents to hand when making the clearing call (e.g. A-level and GCSE grades, UCAS number and clearing number- which can be found on UCAS tracking). You’ll most likely have to write down a lot of information too, so make sure you have a pen and note pad by you.
  • If you’re feeling nervous before, that’s natural and the best thing to do is chat to your loved ones.

Remember, remember…

  • Be patient and persistent, clearing can often involve a lot of time on the phone but remember to stick with it to secure a great place.
  • Although it’s a stressful time remember the person on the end of the phone is a human too who is there to help.
  • Whatever you do, don’t panic! Everything will work out okay.

Now you’ve secured your place it’s offical, you’re off to Uni next month- WHOOP WHOOP!
