TOP TIPS: Clearing
Results not what you expected? Applying through clearing is a way for you get University offers.
We asked our friendly Admissions team what their top tips are for Clearing:
- Take a breath! - there's no need to rush. Clearing isn't just results day, you can apply through clearing up until September!
- Check UCAS Track - even if you didn't get the grades you hoped or were expected, your University still may offer you a place so make sure to check UCAS Track before applying through clearing.
- Do your research before calling, make sure you know where the University is and what course you want to do before applying through clearing.
- Find a quiet place to call from - there's no rush to call as soon as you receive your results, take a deep breath and find a space with no background noise or disturbance.
- Have your details ready including your UCAS number, details of your GCSE's/A Levels and what course you'd be interested in studying.
- Have questions ready to ask - write down any questions you want to ask before you call to make sure you find out everything you want to know.
- Make notes - write down what is discussed on your clearing phone call so you don't have to remember every detail.
- Do you need accommodation? - we guarantee all first year students a place in halls, make sure you know if you need accommodation before calling as this will be a follow up question from an offer being made.
- Be flexible - possibly consider a joint route or a Foundation Degree if you didn't quite reach your grades.
- Don't necessarily take the first offer - once you confirm your University place you can't pick another University or course. Make sure the offer you accept is the right one for you.
