    Hi guys,

    I was just wondering if it is true that you should not go on holiday after year 13 is over, because if you do not get the required A level grades then you can phone universities or something like that???

    What??

    Phoning universities happens on results day and it's called "Clearing." It helps to be around for this if you feel you want/need to go through clearing...

    However you usually finish your exams mid-early june...so you have two months that you can go away then??

    No although it would really help. You'd have to think about how expensive it would be to call to another country, potentially any time zone differences and it also helps to have your results in front of you (You don't get your results until results day so if you're out the country you might struggle finding out your results, you need to know these before going through clearing.)
