Laura didn’t have a UCAS application...
"I was very excited to find out that I could still go to university even though I had made the choice at the last minute.
"I did not want to wait another year, as I would have probably abandoned the idea of studying towards a degree, so Clearing was the perfect option for me.
"I had huge support from my older sister, who was already at university, and my former teachers. The process was very clear and understandable and UCAS were very helpful in explaining what was needed.
"I am extremely happy with the choice I made through Clearing and after my first year I have settled into university life."
Laura's top tip:
Write everything down! With all the log-in codes, references, student finance and the choices it is so easy to lose track so I kept everything in one notebook for easy access. It’s also good to get as many people as possible to read through your personal statement.
