If I don't get my grades to get into my firm choice, do I have to go to my insurance or can I try and get into another Uni through clearing even if I get the grades for my insurance?

You don’t have to go to your insurance choice, even though it would be quite a faf to cancel and move around. You can essentially “decline” and then just go through clearing as you normally would

Hi there!

As its mentioned above you don't have to go to your insurance you could decline and find a different course through clearing or another option is to defer entry for a year until you figure things out.

There is also no rule that says you have to go straight into university and there is no age limit if you wanted to explore your options and get work experience before applying again, it's important to remember that university is a big commitment and you are only eligible for student finance for your first degree so it is important to feel confident that you have made an informed decision about your future.

Whatever you decide the Exam Results Helpline and the National Careers Service can offer impartial information and advice which is tailored to how you feel and circumstances. You can contact the National Careers Service advisers 8am to 10pm every day on 0800 100 900 or you can email, text or webchat from this website:

You can contact the Exam Results Helpline for a dedicated exam results adviser on the same number from 8am on the 16th August (A-Level Results Day).

I hope this helps!

Yes

Unfortunately you have missed the deadline for them to make changes in Track before results day but some universities are willing to put a note on your file to fast track placing you into clearing on results day. Other universities (most I’m afraid) will insist on you ringing them back on results day to request a release into clearing. It takes on average 24-48 hours to be placed into clearing on results day so be prepared for a lot of phone calls.

Hi, sorry about that, my mistake! Thanks for noticing, the helpline is available from the 16th and I promise the advisers will be more switched on than me!

Hope I haven't caused any confusion!
