5 Ways to Conquer Clearing

Results day can be extremely stressful as a student. Yes, it would be nice to get your results, log into UCAS and see that you’re heading off to your chosen university. But not everything is that simple. If you find yourself needing to go through clearing on the day then make sure you know how to get the most out of the situation. Here are some top tips for being successful when it comes to clearing. Walton Robinson can help you find accommodation for clearing students.



Tip No. 1

Just relax. If you can keep yourself calm and level-headed, then you have a better chance of being successful when talking to the different universities. You will be able to make better decisions when it comes to choosing which universities to call and which one you would like to accept as your final offer.




Tip No. 2

Be prepared. The best way to help yourself out and be as stress-free as possible is to know exactly what you are doing. Have a plan of action. Before you start frantically making phone calls, make a list of universities that you like, and which ones you would like to talk to. You will already have applied for a specific subject area during your UCAS application. Think about whether this is something you might want to consider changing. Have all your details written down in front of you on the phone like your UCAS number and this will help make the process easier and faster. 




Tip No. 3

Take your time. There is nothing worse than rushing your decision and then later regretting the choice that you made. You want to make sure that you absolutely made the right choice, so take a minute to compare your offers – chances are you will have a few – and see which one is the right one for you. 




Tip No. 4

Research your accommodation. Deciding where you are going to live is a big deal, so it’s important be happy with where you end up. You have so many options when it comes to student housing.

Tip No. 5

Go have fun. You’ve got a place at university, you have come up with a plan for where you are going to live, so now you can give yourself a pat on the back for what you have achieved. Therefore, our final tip is to go and enjoy yourself. Go out for a meal with your family or go down to your local pub with friends.
