Tips to help you through Clearing

Here are LJMU’s top tips to get your through Clearing and into the university that’s right for you.

  1. PMA. A Positive Mental Attitude will keep you calm, collected and in control – you’re also more likely to make a rational decision.
  2. Plan ahead. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of Clearing, but the more you plan, the better prepared you’ll be. When making those important calls, find a quiet place and ensure you have: your Clearing number from UCAS Track; your A Level results/qualifications; questions you want to ask; your login for UCAS Track; and notes about the course you want to study, including why you want to study your chosen subject and any relevant work experience you may have.
  3. Research. Make a list of potential universities based on your criteria to help focus your search. For example: ‘I want to study Geography and live within two hours of home.’ Make a note of who you want to contact and the numbers you need to call.
  4. Visit. Does the university offer a Clearing Open Day? If not, there’s no harm in taking a day trip and getting a feel for the place. Where you study is a huge part of your university experience. LJMU’s Clearing Open Day is Saturday 17 August.
  5. Think. Don’t just accept the first course offered to you but give some consideration to what the course entails and your own ambitions.
  6. Remember… Your verbal offer is not confirmed until you refer yourself via UCAS Track. You will also need to think about updating your student finance application and booking student accommodation (if you need it). All LJMU students, including late applicants in Clearing, are guaranteed a room in our approved halls.
  7. Good luck! Making big life decisions is hard, but you can do this! Most importantly, we want you to be happy in your choice and have an amazing student experience.
