Gather all the documents and information you'll need on results day including your UCAS number, Clearing number
, your UCAS points, A-level and GCSE grades and make a note of the Ulster University Clearing phone number and opening times.
Once your application has been submitted, you will be invited to use the UCAS Track service and given a Clearing number
. From there, you can follow the steps to look for a university place.
Ucas will send you a welcome email, with details of how to access the service and will give you a Clearing number
. It will also tell you the steps you need to follow - ask for advice, search for vacancies in our search tool, then contact universities and colleges to try to find a place.
WHERE CAN I FIND MY CLEARING NUMBER
? If you're eligible for Clearing, your Clearing number
will be on the welcome page and the 'Your choices' section of Track.
If both your firm and insurance offers have rejected you, if you have only just decided to apply or for some other reason you are not holding offers in the UCAS system, then you will be eligible for clearing and will automatically receive a clearing number
provided you have paid the full UCAS entry fee of PS24.
Universities should have a clearing number
advertised on their website and their phone lines should open early on results day.
They'll need your Clearing number
(located on the welcome and choices pages in Ucas Track, which tracks the progress of your application) and your Personal ID number, which will let them see your application online.
You'll need your clearing number
, which is located on the UCAS website once you've logged in to your existing application.
If both your firm and insurance offers have rejected you, if you have only just decided to apply, or for some other reason you are not holding offers in the UCAS system, then you will be eligible for Clearing and will automatically receive a clearing number
provided you have paid the full UCAS entry fee of PS23.
Be prepared: The clearing process will require you to have specific details at the ready, such as your UCAS PiD, your clearing number
, your exam results and your course choices.
Just prepare a shortlist of universities and courses of your choice from the ones listed on the website, and make sure you have your personal ID and your clearing number
at the ready.
Also remember to contact the universities directly with your Clearing number
and see if they will accept you.
