What is Clearing?

Clearing can be the perfect solution if you need to make new plans fast. It officially begins in July but is most used around A-level results day in August.

If your A-level results aren't what you were hoping for, if you've changed your mind about where to study, or if you made a UCAS application but hold no offers, you can explore other course vacancies by applying through Clearing.
