Common clearing problems - panic and being declined
There are two main problems when going through the clearing process. The first is that everyone who wants to go in to clearing is likely to be panic stricken on results day and will be phoning universities in a state of desperation.
Because of this it may not be easy to get through to universities.
So it may be best to give it a day or two before contacting institutions. Of course the longer you wait the less courses that will be available so you just have to make sure you get the balance right. Give yourself time to come up wit a logical plan and guideline to what you want to do but don’t wait too long so that you’re left with little choice.
One other important thing to remember is that if you declined an offer from a university or college earlier in the year you can still contact it again to see if they will accept you in Clearing, either for the same course or any other.Next: Clearing guides for courses & universities >>
