Step 5: Next Steps If your family member receives lower grades than expected they may find an alternative course through Clearing. This is a process which allows them to search and apply for courses with vacancies. It is important not to panic at this stage but to carefully research options before selecting a course. What happens if your family member passes with better results than predicted? Adjustment provides an opportunity for these applicants to reconsider where and what to study, whilst still being able to keep their original firm choice.

Further details on Clearing and Adjustment are available at www.ucas.com If your family member is having an examination paper remarked, be aware that there are time restrictions to this process. It is possible to progress to university via the further education sector. Your family member may wish to investigate the various progression opportunities available. We work closely with the local colleges and offer many courses through collaboration. Options available can be discussed at our annual Advice Day, faculty admissions staff or further education staff.
