Clearing enables universities and students to connect and ensure Uni places are filled, and students fulfil their dreams in higher education- the most common time people use Clearing is because they didn’t get the exam results they needed to make it into their chosen universities, but Clearing ensures not all is lost!
Clearing starts from July 5th this year- if you apply for University after 30th June you are automatically entered into Clearing.
It is up to you to find a Uni that will accept you. The best way to do this is to check UCAS or the university website, ring them and tell them what you want to do. If they have a vacancy, they will usually take your details and either give you a decision straightaway, or soon afterwards.
TOP CLEARING TIPS
- Be there, don’t go on Holiday!
- Be flexible
- Keep checking UCAS Track
- Call the Universities yourself
- Check UCAS Uni sites for vacancies
- Don’t give up!
