Don't panic about finding a university place - do keep calm
Stay positive and keep an open mind. If you had your mind set on a particular course that is no longer available, give University of East London a call and we can help you find other similar courses that still have availability through Clearing. There are often many options that can lead to the same career pathway.
Make sure you keep in contact with family and friends as this is not a decision you want to rush into and they can help support and advise you on the day. It may also be a good idea to follow your top universities on social media so you get a feel for them in the run up to Clearing.
Don't be on holiday on results day - do be available to make calls
That celebratory holiday can wait. Make sure you are home and near a phone on results day. As courses are on a first come first served basis, it is important that you are able to communicate with your university of choice in the days after you receive your results.
Do be patient on results day - don't hang up if lines are busy
The University of East London call centre is well-staffed, so you won't be waiting long to get through to someone. Make sure your laptop and phone are fully charged just in case you do have to wait in a queue. Remain patient on the day and listen to supportive parents and teachers on the day - they may be able to advise you on your next steps.
Do your course research now - don't leave it until results day
Ahead of Results day it is important you research your preferred courses. The University of East London Course Search page has all the information you need - but should you want to speak with one of our academics - give us a call and we can put you in touch.
