Top tips for stress-free Clearing

Clearing top tip #1: Prepare

Preparation is key, and taking the time to do some research beforehand will guarantee a less stressful situation. Look into as many universities as you can that offer the subject you’re interested in ahead of results day so you have plenty of options to choose from.

Clearing top tip #2: Pick up the phone

Don’t be afraid to talk to a university to see if they have availability in the courses you’re interested in. We're here to help you and answer any questions you may have, so get in touch with our Clearing helpline team on +44 (0)1225 875 550.

Clearing top tip #3: Research all your options

At Bath Spa University, students can apply for a range of courses through Clearing – from social sciences, to photography, computing, law and teaching. Don't limit yourself - explore all the different subjects!

Clearing top tip #4: Don't panic!

We know it’s hard not to stress, but the more prepared you are, the less panicked you’ll feel on the day. Take some time to get together everything you need, then spend a few minutes meditating, listen to music, go for a short walk, or any other activity that relaxes you before you pick up the phone. You got this!
