It’s a little scary to believe that come Monday, we’ll be heading into A Level results week. The Clearing team has already been busy, taking calls and emails and processing all of your applications, and it’s a little scary to think about the amount of data we may end up going through next week! As one of those processors, I handle a lot of data every week and there are times when we notice some things happening quite frequently.

One of those things we tend to run across a lot of the time is people referring themselves on UCAS before we have had a chance to view your application. Please remember that if you do this before you receive a decision from the University, it can end up delaying your application process. We can no longer accept you for the course but don’t panic! All is not lost if you have, there are fixes. Just make sure to email into and ask to be released from that program, making sure to include your name, UCAS/GTTR ID and the program you applied for. Make sure not to ask to be withdrawn, because that causes even more complications for you and we want you to have as smooth a process as possible! Once this is done, your application can be viewed by our academics and your application processed as quickly as possible.

Remember not to panic if a mistake is made, there is always a solution to be found. Clearing can be a stressful time for everybody and we understand that. However, all problems can be made right; just remember to pause, take a deep breath, and just give us a call. We can always help you J
