    Hi everyone! Just a quick question (tried googling it but it didn't help)...do universities stay open at the weekend after A level results come out? Need to check this as I'm not sure whether to take time off work! Thanks in advance!

    Are you worried you're going to miss your offer? If yes, then i'd make sure you're free on the Thursday. Leaving it until the weekend (if they're open) means they've already spent a lot of time giving places available out. They usually employ a load of students to help with the clearing lines, but I can't actually remember whether it spans the weekend.

    Very briefly googled clearing university opening hours - Kingston, for instance, are closed over the weekend but Aberystwyth look to be open. If you can't find it on your particular university site then i'd ring up or e-mail them to ask.

    If your going to need to contact them urgently i.e. because of clearing you need to be ready with a phone at 8am on the Thursday- places are first come first served.

    Most of them do, with Sunday hours being more restricted than Saturday.
