Plans can change rapidly on Results Day. Make sure your students all have plans and contingency plans for best and worst-case scenarios.
Our guide to UCAS clearing will brief you with all the information you need to help your students.
If Clearing is looking like an option for any of your students, encourage them to explore their options, including alternative courses and potential routes into study. Help them stay focused and encourage them to think about their options.
Get them to note down the Clearing phone lines of the universities they may want to contact. The University of Stirling’s Clearing helpline is 01786 466166. We're open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
It’s also worthwhile encouraging students to practice phone interviews so they are used to answering questions about their motivations for applying, their plans and their UCAS Personal Statement.
