3 UNEXPECTED RESULTS? DON T PANIC! Staff are available to advise you until 12 noon. You will need to complete a GREEN External Re-sit Form. You can re-sit any subject modules at the College. There will be additional costs, as the College is accepting your entry on an external student basis, which you will need to pay at the time of entry, along with the Awarding Body module fee. Contact the Exams Officer on , extension 1130 or go to CG19 as soon as you have made the decision, or are looking for some advice. UCAS website: UCAS INFORMATION UCAS Clearing advice will be available in the LRC on Results Day. IF YOU ARE HOLDING A HIGHER EDUCATION OFFER AND YOU MAKE THE REQUIRED GRADES YOU WILL CERTAINLY BE IN. WE HOPE YOU GET THE GRADES YOU NEED. Have everything ready Results day can be stressful, so make sure you know how it works and what to expect. Have your Track login details handy and update your contact details if you need to. Make sure you're available on results day, because we can't speak to anyone else about your application details unless you give them nominated access to speak on your behalf. Hopefully you'll get the exam grades you need, but if you just miss out, the university/college might accept you anyway. You might get a place on either your firm or insurance choice, depending how well your exams go. You might be offered an alternative by the university/college a 'changed course offer' (which you'll need to accept or decline). You might not get a place, but you can search through the Clearing service to see what courses still have vacancies. If no decisions are showing, give your universities/colleges a call to find out more. If you do better than expected If you had a conditional firm offer you met and exceeded, you might be curious about courses with higher entry requirements. If so, you can see what's available in the Adjustment service. Adjustment is a chance for you to reconsider where and what to study. If you've had a firm conditional choice accepted, and therefore made into an unconditional firm choice, you could potentially swap your place for one on another course you prefer. Adjustment is available between August It's entirely optional, and a lot of competitive courses will be full, but other applicants might have missed their conditions or swapped a course too, so it could be worth seeing what's available. If you try Adjustment but you don't find anything, you'll still keep the course you gained on results day. You'll see the option to register in Track.
4 Your original Unconditional Firm (UF) choice will be safe while you're looking for another, you'll only lose it if you confirm you'd like to go elsewhere and the new university/college adds themselves to your application. If originally you only applied for one course (for the reduced fee of 12) you'll have to pay the additional 11 to be able to apply to more courses. Talk to any unis or colleges you're interested in There's no vacancy list for Adjustment you'll need to check course details using the search tool and contact admissions offices at unis and colleges to talk about any possible vacancies. Tell them you're applying through Adjustment and give them your Personal ID. (They won't be able to see your application unless you've registered.) They'll check you've met and exceeded your conditions. (Remember if you contact them on results day there could be a short delay while your application is updated.) Talk to them about course vacancies, but be careful to confirm that you're just gathering information at this stage; only verbally agree an offer with a university or college if you're absolutely sure you want it. See if there's an offer you want to accept If a uni or college offers you a place over the phone, you just need to let them know if you'd like to accept it. Remember you can only have one Adjustment offer, and it's the university or college that will add themselves to your application. Only verbally accept one offer, and make sure it's the right one! If they're happy to accept you, your Track screen will be updated with the new choice and we'll send you a confirmation letter. If not, you can keep on looking, or once your Adjustment time limit is up, you'll just keep your original place. If you've registered for Adjustment in error, don't worry; as long as you don't contact any other unis about applying through Adjustment, you'll stay with your firm choice. After the five-day period has finished, the Adjustment information will disappear. If things don t go to plan Find out about exam re-marks; you'll need to try to arrange the re-mark as quickly as possible, and keep in touch with your university or college to keep them up-to-date. Look for course vacancies in the Clearing service, or look into other options, like a gap year, work or an Apprenticeship; either instead of higher education or just while you reapply for next year. Clearing: Clearing is how universities and colleges fill any places they still have on their courses. It's an ideal way for you to find another course. It's available July-September each year. If you already have your exam results but you have no offers, you can use Clearing from July. If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, you can use Clearing from results day. The idea is you identify courses (with vacancies) that interest you and contact the course providers directly to see if they will offer you a place. You'll know you're in Clearing if your Track status says 'You are in Clearing' or 'Clearing has started'.
5 If your Track doesn't say either of these yet, it might just be waiting for your results to update. Get in touch with the universities/colleges if it's taking a while; they might still be considering you, even if your results are a bit lower than required. If you originally only applied for one course (for the reduced fee of 12) you'll have to pay an additional 11 to enable you to apply for multiple courses. UCAS has the official vacancy list online, and The Telegraph newspaper shows them too. Consider different subjects you don't have to stick with your original idea. The online list is updated continually; you might not find the exact unis/colleges/courses you're looking for as some might be full, but some might get vacancies later on, so keep checking back. Talk to the Unis you are interested in. Give them your Clearing number (located on the welcome and choices pages in Track), and your Personal ID number which will let them see your application online. Ask if they'd accept you; they might reconsider you (maybe for the same course) even if you applied to them earlier in the year. Get informal offers over the phone, maybe from a variety of universities and colleges, and then decide which one you want to accept. Take a look around, if you have the time, it's the best way to see what a university/college is like; most will be happy to meet you and show you around. Add a Clearing choice in Track. Please only add a Clearing choice once you've had confirmation from the university that they're happy to offer you a place. Click 'Add Clearing choice' and fill in the course details by the date the university/college gave you on the phone. This counts as you definitely accepting the offer, so if they confirm it'll show as an acceptance on the choices page of Track and UCAS will send you a confirmation letter. You can only add one choice at a time, but if the university/college doesn't confirm your place, you'll be able to add another. As part of Clearing 2015, UCAS is introducing a new service to help you if you find yourself without a university or college place in the summer. If you're eligible, UCAS will have sent you an asking if you'd like to use this service. You can sign up via the link in the . The service is entirely optional. If you sign up, unis and colleges can phone you from 13 August - 4 September if you're eligible for Clearing and they have a relevant course for you. A maximum of five universities or colleges may contact you. If you sign up you can still go through Clearing in the same way as previous years, if you want to. You don t have to accept any offers, and should consider all your options before committing to a place.
