Clearing success story: Bedfordshire

Read about Brett's experience of getting a place through Clearing to study a Biochemistry BSc at the University of Bedfordshire.

Why did you use Clearing?

After performing poorly on my A Levels (scoring grade D in Biology, Chemistry and Maths), I applied through Clearing and was given a second chance.

Did you attend a Clearing open day? How was it?

The professor gave me a tour of the campus and spoke to me about a great number of things that have inspired my studies.

How was your university experience?

Since that day, I've been motivated to make the most out of this chance. I've done this by not only putting my fullest into my studies, but also actively trying make connections with others in the field. Throughout my time at UoB, my self-confidence has also grown and I'm no longer afraid to put myself out there, which has proved beneficial. To conclude, I hope to further my studies and continue networking in the years to come, as I've never been as enthusiastic for a subject as I've been for Biochemistry.
