    Basically i am just trying to find the best way to help my son. He keeps getting recalled for acting degrees and then not getting the place. He is seriously disheartened now and has used up all his choices except extra. Have you known anyone to get a place on an acting degree through clearing as this looks like it might be his last option. If you do know someone who has done which uni was it. He is really talented (not just my opinion) but not quite getting there.

    I'm aware that applications to drama schools are very very competitive, and it seems that it isn't uncommon for applicants to take 3 or 4 years before being given a place. It seems for some schools, the first application year is almost a practice for the real thing in the next few years. At the moment, Extra is open to him so he should consider his options there. Is there anything he is interested in? Has he considered taking a gap year?

    I've moved this to the creative arts forum as you'll get a better response there
