UCAS Clearing 2014 and your Results

Results day and UCAS Clearing 2014 go hand-in-hand.

With results day looming you’re certainly not alone if you're feeling slightly anxious, even the most confident of people are feeling a little nervous as the big day creeps nearer. Try not to worry if you find you’re in UCAS Clearing this year. Over 54,000 people found a University place through clearing last year. The trick is to keep calm, don’t panic, and prepare for all eventualities. If you play your cards right you could be off to University in just a few months’ time.

A few preparations…

  1. Have your UCAS Track login details to hand and check that your contact details are up to date.
  2. Free yourself up on results day so that you can call universities and that they can contact you.
  3. Make a note of your top University Clearing Hotline numbers, just in case…

The big day…

  1. Keep an eye on UCAS track
  2. Depending on how well you do you could be accepted by your Firm choice or Insurance choice – if so, well done.

Other options…

  1. If you haven’t met the terms of your offer you could still be accepted, a university could make a change to their course offer and offer you an alternative place. You can discuss this with the university before you accept.
  2. If you do better than expected, you may want to look at courses with higher entry requirements – this process is called adjustment.

Things haven’t quite gone your way?.. Don’t worry, you’ve still got options.

  1. If you don’t get accepted by your Firm or Insurance choice, UCAS will release you into University Clearing 2014.
  2. You can find all University Clearing vacancies on the UCAS website. Find Aberystwyth University Clearing Vacancies here
  3. Call Universities to discuss your Clearing options for September 2014 entry

You got a University place then?... Congratulations!

  1. UCAS will send you a confirmation. You will hear from the University in due course.
