Entering Clearing can be a stressful and hectic time, especially as it opens the day you receive your exam results. There are lots of different places you can get help, support and advice to get you through it and come out with a place on a course.
Why you are in Clearing
You enter clearing if you applied to university after June 30th, you didn’t receive any offers from universities, you didn’t meet the conditions (like getting AAB or a certain amount of UCAS tariff points) or haven’t yet applied for university.
If you think there is a chance you will enter Clearing before it has begun, or you just want to make sure you are fully prepared there are a few different places you can go.
The full list of course vacancies and their universities will be displayed on their website, and you will need to use the UCAS Track area to accept offers and get on a course.
The BBC website has lots of information about where to go and who to contact during results and exam time and this is for students and parents.
The Times will have a list of the Clearing courses available, and run articles on what to do next so keep an eye out.
Follow UCAS and any universities you are interested in on your Twitter feed as this the most live updated version you can get.
The university’s website
The university website will have a full list of courses they have available, but make sure you call them and speak to an advisor as courses can fill up fast, and you don’t want to miss your chance.
You can check back here on University Compare to see a list of courses and updates throughout the Clearing process.
