    As the title says, I went through clearing last year! I'm happy to offer people some advice and helpful tips.

    Why I went through clearing: I actually got the grades I needed to go to my first choice but thanks to a member of my family suddenly moving I had no place close enough to live at to be able to go. So I decided to reject my offer and go through clearing.

    I had originally intended to study BA Media Studies at Anglia Ruskin, I am now studying FdSc Applied Animal Studies at Moulton College (validated by the University of Northampton) and will "top-up" my degree next year.

    Out of interest, was it just not viable to stay in uni halls?

    Roughly when/how did you make up your mind about what course you wanted to do (seeing as they're different) - was it before or after results day?

    Regarding the course change, I changed after results day and the why is that I realised I had the opportunity do something completely different, I never realised that I could do I course about animals that wasn't vet-related (blame my sixth form for that.

    What do they ask you?
    They will ask you your UCAS points, which course you're interested in and why. They may also ask which career path you want to go into.

    Have your UCAS info to hand and your personal statement as well as your results. It may be worth counting your UCAS points before you phone.
