Top tips for Clearing

  1. You may have a lot to think about on Results Day, so it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the Clearing process beforehand to help you understand your options – particularly if you don’t do as well as you’d hoped. Clearing can feel fast-paced, so taking the time to research and prepare before making a phone call will help ensure that you secure the right course.
  2. At NTU, the Clearing team will work with you to try and find a suitable course. You'll be asked a series of questions about your results and experience, so have all of your results to hand, including your GCSE or equivalent results. You’ll need your UCAS number and your Clearing number if you have one.
  3. Talk to teachers, parents and friends about which courses might suit you best. Entry requirements may differ during Clearing, so it’s worth contacting universities directly to discuss your options. Remember – Clearing isn’t a race, there are plenty of university spaces up and down the country and Clearing is an opportunity to find the right one for you.
