Top Tips for Clearing

  1. Prepare in advance Even if you’re feeling confident, do some contingency planning by making a list of possible alternative courses and universities. This will be easy to check against the Clearing listings when they are published.
  2. Check UCAS Track If you become eligible to use Clearing, an 'Add Clearing choice' button will become available on your Track Choices screen. If you’re unsure, check directly with your firm and insurance choices as soon as possible.
  3. Always make the phone call yourself and start ringing straight away Universities are unable to offer places unless they are actually speaking to the candidate and places get full quickly!
