Top tips for Clearing

  1. Try not to panic or feel pressured into making a hasty decision on Results Day.
  2. Make yourself a list of the key things you’re looking for in a university e.g. accommodation availability, course content, placements, assessment methods, and other important stuff.
  3. As soon as you have your results, call up universities and have your UCAS number (if you have one) and details of your qualifications to hand.
