More students across United Kingdom using clearing to choose university place

More students across United Kingdom using clearing to choose university place

Success stories from around Trafford College are flooding in today as students celebrate another successful year of A Level results. She will be progressing to St. Andrews University to study English and Classical Studies.

In our research, we saw a number of instances where students made repeat calls - presumably to try and speak to a different call taker - to see if they could get a place that way.

A-Level results on the Rock are down by 4% from a year ago.

On Wednesday, my examinations officer downloads the results and we start to analyse them. 100% of Year 11 Additional Mathematics students achieved the top grade, A. Interim Headteacher, Mrs Marie-Helene Collins, commented, "We are delighted with these exceptional results, which are so well deserved, for our wonderful girls".

Glen Vernon, head of Prestatyn High Sixth Form, said: "These significant increases are unprecedented. I've had to work hard to get to this point and I'm really proud of what I have achieved".

Food industry 'ready for calorie-reduction challenge'
It includes the soft drinks industry levy, coming into effect in April, which charges drinks manufacturers... Food manufacturers needed to start reducing calories in their food today, it added.

One student celebrating a combination of straight As and A*s was head girl Fran Goss, who said: "I was not expecting these results whatsoever but I am delighted and just speechless after opening my envelope - I almost cried". It was a brilliant two years at New College Stamford. I can't recommend studying at Trafford College enough!

Sixth formers at St Augustine's Priory also collected a praiseworthy set of A Level results this year.

Kim Clifford, from the Association of Colleges, is on hand with some top tips to help you make sense of your results and get one step closer to that bright future that is waiting for you.

But remember - when you do start uni next year, there will be plenty of people there who re-sat their exams and took gap years. "Once again they are leaving us with the world at their feet, not only with the great results they deserve, but also with the broader skills, attributes and attitudes that come from being part of our wonderful school".

Sunderland Sixth Form was opened at the college's Bede Campus to ensure A-Level students have a dedicated centre for learning, which comprises of first-rate teaching, resources and facilities, as well as specialised support and guidance. Last year over 64,900 students used the Ucas online system for clearing - this means that one in eight people accepted into university last year went through the process. However, thanks to the therapy I received and the positive influence that my friends had on me, I was more willing to try new things which eventually led to me having hobbies and achievements that I am proud of.

"The vast majority of universities around the United Kingdom have places in clearing for quite large majority of their courses". "We wish all of our outgoing students the very best for the future and look forward to celebrating with them at next month's presentation evening". "I'm particularly pleased as my grandma died in May and she really wanted me to go to Oxford and she knew that I'd got my place".

Also at the school, a series of students achieved A and A* grades in all their subjects.

Although the prospect of going through clearing can leave some feeling unsettled, it's important to remember that you're not alone.

Tens of thousands of degree courses are still available, as universities scramble to snap up students who have not yet secured a place.

At The Henry Box School, acting headteacher Steve Pritchard said the results were testament to the hard work and effort by the staff and students.
