The Traditional Applicant

Didn't get the grades you expected on results day? It's not ideal, but through Clearing you'll have another chance to find a place on a course that's right for you. Start exploring.

Applying through Clearing if you don't get your grades

There's no sugarcoating this: not getting into your firm or insurance choice unis will hurt. For some it could feel like the end of the world, but trust us (and the tens of thousands of students who go through Clearing every year) - it really isn't. Clearing gives you a second chance at getting a university place on a course you'll love. Yes, you'll have to readjust your plans, and yes, you'll have to search for courses and apply all over again. But going through Clearing helps to make sure you hold on to what's most important: studying towards your future.
