Clearing is an opportunity for prospective students who haven't got into their chosen universities to still get a place once they have their A Level results. It can be used by any student who hasn’t got a confirmed or insurance place after results day. Even those who have can release themselves into Clearing if they change their mind.
Clearing dates may vary by a few days every year, but are generally from the beginning of July until mid October. You can do as much research as you like before results day and find courses and universities you’re interested in so you’re ready to call them on the day.Read more
