Thursday the 15th August is this years A’ Level results day and with it comes a flood of emotions, both good and bad. For those who’ve gained the results they were hoping for, whoops of joy will echo the halls of sixth forms and colleges. Unfortunately, there will be those who haven’t quite managed to get the grades for their chosen universities.
If you’re in that position don’t panic! Clearing is your friend and with it you should be able to find a university and course that suits you. Last year around 160,000 students found themselves in the midst of a clearing frenzy. With even more applications this year, there may be a slight increase in clearing numbers.
To help ease the pressure, many universities have created ‘how to’ guides to the clearing process. We particularly liked this one from Aberystwyth University so we thought we’d share it for you here.
