    Thought this would encourage a few of you who are in clearing at the moment and a bit negative about it.

    A good friend of mine who only did 2 Alevels and got two C's has just been offered a plave to do Philosophy at Sheffield uni through clearing. She rejected her only offer (from London Met) and got a place at one of the best universities in the country.

    My point is that going into clearing doesn't mean that all is lost and you're destined to study at a sub-standard uni. According to the tutor she spoke to there are many places always available at the top unis and having lowish grades doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a try - all they can say is no thank you.
