ucasTop tips for making the most out of clearing

Research the uni, course content, teaching and assessment style before picking up the phone

Be clear on reasons for your choice – why do you want to do that course? Why that uni?

Look over your personal statement and be ready to talk about it.

If you have missed out on an offer from your preferred universities, then UCAS will tell you that you are in clearing in the Track section of the website from 8am.

The first step is to get your exam results from college so you can tell other universities to get on a different course. If you’ve achieved better results you can also change offer by going through the adjustment process.

Once you’ve got your results, search for a course at www.ucas.com and see what’s available from midnight tonight (Wednesday). Once you’ve seen a course that appeals to you, give the university a ring on their dedicated clearing hotline.

You’ll be asked a series of questions so treat it as a mini-interview. If you are offered a place you want to accept add it to your choice for clearing on UCAS Track from 5pm on Thursday (August 15) and the university will confirm your place.

Applicants can log in to the redesigned Track on the UCAS website from 08:00 on results day to see if they have been accepted or are eligible for Clearing. They will also receive an email from UCAS confirming their status.

Mary Curnock Cook, UCAS Chief Executive, said: “There will be a rich variety of courses offering vacancies through Clearing this year, across a range of universities and colleges.

“Some 12 per cent of all enrolments last year were through clearing which has now become a mainstream application route for higher education.

“If you are flexible and open-minded, clearing offers a chance to re-think your choices, make more realistic applications or even to fulfil new ambitions.”

A-level results day 2015 2016: How Ucas tells students they’ve passed before their schools do

The traditional results day image of nervous students prising open their results envelopes in a terrifying moment of truth may be an anachronism thanks to the growth of online applications.

While previously teenagers would have no choice but to queue up outside their school gates to find out their academic futures, many are now accessing Ucas Track, the online university application service, on their way in to school or college, or even before they leave home.

Ucas Track informs students of universities’ decisions at around 8.00am, before many teenagers have arrived at their schools to collect their results envelopes.

“The majority of teenagers have laptops or tablets, so they can log in on their way into school,” said a Ucas spokesman. “In some cases you may find out a little earlier than 8.00am, but that is the time at which Track is updated.”

Universities, which find out applicants’ A-level results a few days in advance, inform Ucas of their decision ahead of results day. Ucas then publish these decisions online on the morning itself.

“There’s a whole range of emotions, reactions and approaches. Even among those who come in, some open theirs straight away, others go back to the car with their mum and dad. It is a momentous occasion.

“A lot of them do know whether they’ve got their place in advance, but not most. It’s an increasing trend.”
