Results Day on the 16th of August is fast approaching and if you need to make use of the Clearing System Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) want to make sure you’ve got everything you need to succeed.

Clearing can be a confusing and emotional process, particularly if you’re entering it off the back of missing out on your desired grades. However, it doesn’t have to be that way, at BGU we are dedicated to clearing up the confusions of the process, turning into the start of your new adventure.

How Do I Apply for a Course Through Clearing?

Once you’ve found a course you like and have been given a verbal offer by the university, you need to add the course as your Clearing choice in the ‘Your Choices’ section of UCAS Track

What Grades Will I Need to Apply for a Course Through Clearing?

It depends on the university you’re thinking of going to. The entry requirements during Clearing can vary from university to university, so you’ll need to speak to them and let them know the grades you’ve achieved, and ask if they will consider you for the course.

What Does ‘Conditional’ Mean?

If it says ‘conditional’ next to your offer but you have the required grades for your firm or insurance offer, don’t panic – UCAS Track may not have been updated. But do contact the university if you are concerned about this. If you have missed the grades for your firm or insurance offer and it still says ‘conditional’ then contact the university, as they may not have made a decision yet. If your firm or insurance choice don’t accept you, then you’ll enter Clearing.

What Does ‘UCC’ Mean?

If you have missed your firm or insurance offer but you’ve been accepted onto a different course, this will show up on UCAS Track as UCC (unconditional changed course) with the new course code. Consider the new course carefully. It may be quite different from your original choice, so make sure you look through the university website or speak to someone at the university to find out everything you need to know about the course before accepting. You may also be eligible for other alternative courses at the university so it is worth speaking to them about this. You have five days to decide whether to accept this alternative or decline it. If you decline, you will either go to your insurance university (if applicable and if they have accepted you) or into Clearing. If you are happy with the changed course offer, you must accept it on UCAS Track. Remember – you must do this within five days.

What if I’m on Holiday on Results Day?

If you know you’re going to be away over results day, you’ll need to make arrangements with your school to ensure you can receive your results, if you can’t get them online. If you end up going into Clearing, make sure you do everything possible to contact universities as soon as you can – if you leave it until you get back you will have much less choice.
