Thinking of applying through Clearing but not got your results yet?
With results day coming up on 10 August, you might be starting to think about your options – or maybe you’ve decided that the course you applied for, or the university you chose, are no longer right for you. You might think there’s nothing you can do until you get your results, but we’ve got some ideas for you! You can download our Clearing 2021 guide, which is full of hints and tips that will make sure you are well prepared for Clearing once you have received those results.
Find the right course for you
University is a big investment, not only in financial terms, but time, too. You need to make sure that the course you pick is something you’ll enjoy doing for three or more years, and that it could lead to a career that you’ll find fulfilling! So, whether you’re looking at courses for the first time or if you’ve had a change of heart, it’s important to go for what you want.
Take a look at which courses we have in Clearing to find the right one for you. Each course page has a detailed breakdown of the modules you’ll study, so you’ll know straight away if you’ll be focusing on what interests you and will make you more employable.

Find the right university for you
Lockdown may have made you reconsider going to a uni far away…or maybe the opposite! Yes, your course is important, but it’s just as important to study at a reputable institution recognised for your subject area to ensure you get the best teaching and support.

Work out your UCAS points
If you’re looking at a new course, or thinking of studying your course at a different university, it’s worth looking up how many UCAS points you’ll need to be accepted, and that you meet the entry requirements. We’ve got a handy UCAS points calculator so you can work out roughly whether you’ll have enough! Why not go off your mock results, or the grades you think you might be awarded, and give yourself a margin either way if you do worse or better than you anticipate. You’ll then have a list of potential options depending on your final points!

So, you’ve worked out what course you want to apply to, and decided on your university – hopefully BCU, of course – and have a rough idea of your UCAS points. The last thing to do is get clued up on Clearing so you’re ahead of the game on results day, meaning you can secure your dream course at the right uni before breakfast time. Good luck!
