As exam day approaches it could be helpful for parents to understand the clearing system.
- It’s available July to 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, when Clearing vacancies will be listed in the search tool
- Clearing vacancies are updated regularly by universities and colleges. If you don’t find the course you’re looking for straight away, try again later.
If your exam results are reasonable and you’re flexible on subject/location, there’s still a good chance you’ll find another course.
