Did you apply directly through clearing? watch

    • Thread Starter

    14,000 people have found places through clearing this year, but 3600 of them applied directly through clearing, side-stepping the rest of the application process. I'm really interested to know why? Did you plan this, or did you do better in your exams than predicted? Where you targeting a particular course or a particular university?

    I did this and planned on taking a gap year before. I got a decent offer at St Georges so I decided it would be better to take it than waste a year and have the hassle of applying.
