Clearing

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re all enjoying August, I can’t believe we’re halfway through already!

There’s a big day coming up this week which I’m sure you are all waiting for: Results Day.

I wish you all the best of luck and hope you all get the grades that you want to continue on the next part of your adventure.

Unfortunately sometimes there are disappointments and life doesn’t quite go to plan.

For anyone who doesn’t quite manage to get the grades they need to meet their offer conditions, it isn’t the end of the road!

If you don’t reach the conditions of your Firm or Insurance choice it can be quite a stressful situation.

Clearing is a service offered by UCAS that allows people who don’t have a confirmed uni place to find a course and start in September.

Clearing is open from Results Day and you can find out more on the UCAS website here.

You’ll be able to search vacancies at different universities and different courses, and it gives you the opportunity to start uni this year, even if your results are a little different than expected.

Once you find a course and university that you like the look of you can contact them straight away.

They will be able to answer any questions you might have, give advice on your choices and make you an offer to study there.

Clearing is a great service and allows many students each year to continue on to uni.

If you go through Clearing I would suggest you still research a little into the university, accommodation and course you want to study before you accept any offers.

Once you’ve done your research you’ll be more confident when you head off to uni in a month’s time, and be able to fully enjoy the experience.

If you need any help or advice with clearing the UCAS website is a great place to start, and your college or sixth form will probably be able to point you in the right direction too.

Best of luck to you all! 

Until next time
