    Hi, I've had a little look about but I'm having trouble finding some help for Clearing. I have recently been put into clearing and was just wondering how I go about it from here, for example, how do I know which courses are available through clearing, and could you re-apply for a course through clearing?
    thanks, Ryan.

    The main clearing listings wont be released until A level results day.

    However there's nothing to stop you contacting universities with courses listed here: http://search.ucas.com/ to find out if they will take you.

    You can reapply to a course you've already applied to - however if you were rejected first time it is unlikely they would be interested. In clearing you don't "apply" - you contact over the phone and get verbal offers, once you have an offer you want to accept you submit it as your clearing choice on track, if the uni oks it then you're in game over.

    Clearing hasn't really started yet, and you won't be able to see the full range of courses available until it opens on results day. When that comes, you can get a full list of courses in the Telegraph and contact admissions departments through that. You will also see courses listed on university websites, and of course, Ucas will have everything you need. It's done on the phone, because things move very quickly, so be ready to get calling and talking. TSR will be there to answer your questions as well, but really, it's down to you and an admissions tutor on the phone on the day.

    How long is a piece of string? I'm afraid there is no solid answer to that.
