Clearing for the second year

I finished my A2 this year (2016) but didn't get good results. I then got put into Clearing but I did not want to go to university this year in the end, as I now want to take a gap year, or take a level 3 diploma for a year to gain some more ucas points. Is it possible for me to go through Clearing next year if unis don't accept me again?

Hello Ibrahim,

You will have to make a new application to UCAS for 2017 entry.

Many people do this so don't be put off. It will be worth it if you can get those extra UCAS points.

Research universities carefully and pick the best course for you. Take advice from teachers and parents.

Good luck.
