So by the time you’re reading this you’ve most likely picked up your results, logged onto UCAS track and are either awash with relief or still just as stressed out as you were this morning.
If it’s the latter, then it could be because you may not have got the grades you needed to go to your first and insurance choice universities, and you’re considering entering clearing. Alternatively, you might have done much better than you expected, in which case its great news, but still comes hand in hand with a small amount of stress as you start considering adjustment.
Whichever it is, take a deep breath and don’t panic! You might just be in a much better position than you think.
If you've met and exceeded conditions for your firm choice, you might be thinking about looking for an alternative course. Adjustment is available from A-level results day until 31st August.
If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, you can use clearing from results day. Clearing is available from July to September each year.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you’re prepared and do your research, keep calm and remember, you’re in control. Best of luck!
