Results day is just around the corner, and even if you’re not planning on using clearing, it’s a good idea to be prepared for all eventualities! And if you haven’t applied for university yet, it’s not too late, with plenty of great courses still available to you through clearing.

In this session for students and their parents or carers, Luke Gibbons, Head of Undergraduate Admissions from the University of East Anglia (UEA), will cover everything you need to know about clearing – including the chance to hear a mock call – so you’ll know just what to expect when the big day arrives.

We’ll cover:

  1. What is clearing? A jargon-free explanation of clearing: how does it work, who is it for and what are the benefits.
  2. What happens on results day? A step-by-step guide of what happens, when.
  3. How can I prepare? Simple tips to make sure you make the right decisions, without feeling panicked or overwhelmed.
  4. What happens on the call? It can be daunting to pick up the phone. Listen in on our mock call so you’ll know just what to expect, and know you have nothing to worry about.
  5. What’s it like to go through clearing? Don’t just take our word for it. Hear from a current university student sharing their experience of getting a university place through clearing.


There will also be plenty of time to ask any questions you might have.

Teachers and advisers are welcome to join the session.

Please note that, although the session is scheduled to end at 18:45, the team at UEA will stay on until 19:00 to answer further questions.   

Also, the presentation section of this talk will be recorded to share online at a later date but the interactive Q&A element will not be recorded.


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.


Suitable for: Students who want to be fully prepared for all eventualities on Results Day by finding out more about securing a university place through Clearing. Advisers, teachers and parents/carers are also very welcome to join us.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about the Clearing process.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Zoom and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
