A LEVELS: Local students celebrate results

A LEVELS: Local students celebrate results

Students awaiting their A-level results visit The Clearing on London's South Bank - a space created by London South Bank University (LSBU) to help prepare students ahead of next week's results day.

Students around the Island will get their results with many hoping to go to University.

Once your Track status switches to "You are in clearing" or "Clearing has started" then you're good to go on to the next step.

Send us their name, age and college along with a sentence or two congratulating them on their achievements.

"Medicine or Law might not be in clearing for some universities, but the majority of courses will have some clearing places". This is important because sometimes universities may decide to give your offer to somebody else if they are unable to get through to you.

In a Daily Mail survey, Sheffield was making "most" courses available for students going through clearing and will guarantee accommodation to any students coming through the process. Whether you have received the grades you wanted or not, there is something out there that is right for you.

Despite this, remember that even if you register to use Adjustment on UCAS, it is not compulsory.

Talk to the person about the course and the university and ask if they'll accept you.

"There's no substitute to looking around universities and meeting people", he tells us.

Aside from this legwork, other more simple tasks will ease results day stress. You'll need to collect your grades manually, so make sure to do this as soon as possible, especially if you haven't been accepted into a university.

London South Bank University's vice chancellor, Professor David Phoenix, said: "These results underline just how stressful the Clearing process can be for students and the impact it is having on their ability to make informed decisions, which will in turn affect their future career paths or job prospects".

Clearing has been growing year on year. The system has been put in place to accommodate this and sees thousands of people happily placed into higher education every year. Take all the opportunities that come your way, and enjoy the experience'.

The process off receiving an offer is very different to Clearing.

'Make sure you take some time to think about what you want to do next, and seek advice from those who know you best - parents, teachers, and friends.
