It can be a nerve-wracking day but stay calm and positive and let your students know there’s still plenty of options available to them.
Once students have got their results, get them to log into UCAS Hub to see the status of their offers. It’s important that they don’t just assume they’ve automatically lost their place if they haven’t achieved all conditions of their firm or insurance offer.
Students should contact the universities they’re interested in as soon as possible. Please note that we need to speak to the applicant directly and can’t discuss a student’s application with you.
Before they make contact with a university make sure they have the following information to hand:
- UCAS ID
- UCAS Clearing ID
- UCAS Personal Statement
Ensure they have read over their UCAS personal statement. The university may ask them questions around why they want to study a particular course at that university. Help them to prepare answers to these types of questions in advance.
Before they make contact get them to make a list of any questions they might want to ask about the university, the courses they’re interested in, or any aspect of student life such as accommodation, travel and support services.
