UCAS action needed …

To all UCAS applicants – Today is A level results day in the UK so if you wish to avail of Clearing it is important to act promptly and calmly.   See information in our previous blogs, emails  and on UCAS track.   It may be important to send your results to colleges and also to get on the phone to other colleges if you are eligible for Clearing.    Remember to have information to hand including any reasons which might explain a drop in results – colleges will sometimes be persuaded to take a student who has ‘under-performed’ if you can present a good case.  For example that you are asking for a re-check or that past history shows you are usually at the level required.  They are very busy today so it pays to be well prepared with personal statement and all relevant exam history to hand so you can argue your case and also see if a course might be best for you as well.
