Start Your Research Now
While you are hoping for the best come August 15th, it pays to have a back-up plan just in case things don't go as well as you hope.
Be prepared by doing some research before you get your results. Make a list of courses and/or universities that you might want to go if you miss your grades. That way, you can spring straight into action - should you need to - come results day.

If you’re calling them, give them your
Clearing number and Personal ID number so they can see exactly what your marks are – they may then get back to you with an informal offer over the phone. UCAS
Once you have an offer you like, use UCAS Track to add a Clearing Choice and fill in the appropriate details. After that, you just have to wait for a confirmation letter.
Think of Your Future
Where do you want to be in three or four years’ time? Do you want to get work or industry experience under your belt at the same time as studying? Look for a course where you get an education in your subject and crucial employment experience.

If you don’t get a place on results day, there is lots of time before university starts. You will have time to make new applications and decide what you want. The last thing you want to do is make a rash decision, make the right one.
Keep an Open Mind
Don’t be put off just because you’re not very familiar with a particular university. There are more options open to you than you might thing. What you chose to do originally may no longer be the right choice for you.
Try to stay calm! A-Level Results Day can often seem like the be all and end all for your future, but no matter what happens, you’ll find that most things will sort themselves out in time.
Securing the right university place is an exciting thing. It’s important to remember and look forward to the future.
