Clearing Or the Autumn/Summer Exam Series?Watch
For students who fail to meet their offer on results day but still want to attend university, the next few days can be pretty intense. They have to make decisions and make those decisions quickly. It seems to me that students who are still set on going to university after receiving their A-level grades have two main choices. They can either go through Clearing this year, or take the Autumn 2020 or Summer Exam series in the hope of boosting their grades.
This is clearly such a huge decision, and there are such a wide range of things to consider. I wanted to ask you guys, what factors do you think will influence your decision this year? I thought it would be useful for other students to know about all the things to consider before making their final university decisions.
If you get lower than expected, do you plan to sit Autumn exams or go through clearing? If this is the case what support would you need to help from us or anyone else to help you through this?
Similarly, if you were to do much better than you had planned, what then? In that scenario do you think you are already well-equipped with everything you need to know?
