    I’m going on holiday in august, but I have the chance to come back the day before results day. My problem is that my mum lives in a different country and I will be seeing her for 6 days, and won’t see her again till next year . I do not know whether to take a chance and stay with her for an extra week, or come back for results day. I do not feel confident with my results and am pretty sure I will have to make some calls.

    So my question is:

    Do you think I should take a risk and stay an extra week on holiday, or, should I come back for results day?

    Also is it possible to sort out the clearing in a different country, provided I have a phone and all my ucas forms.

    I don't see why you can't make any nessecary calls from a different country, but it will just cost you more. x

    A bit risky to go on holiday, just make sure you take everything you need in terms of your application just in case. It'll just cost you more in phone calls.

    Yes, it's fine, just ensure you let your school know so they can make the necessary arrangements.

    this.

    youll definitely need to organise someone else to get your results for you.

    If you have internet access abroad then surely you can check whether you got in over UCAS Track? I am sure you can probably call UCAS from another country it will just cost you a lot more. Have you tried contacting UCAS to see if it is possible?

    There'll be International students who would have to make phone calls from abroad to sort stuff out so I'm sure it'd be fine for you too. Why don't you ring your school and get your results on the day?

    Thanks every one, all the post have been really helpful, and I think the next step is to contact the college.

    No, you will get shot if your not there to collect the results yourself.
