Danial joined us via Clearing in 2016
Danial panicked when he received his exam results and thought he had no chance of going to university that year and that he would have to re-sit year 13 or look at other options outside university.
He was aware of Clearing, but hadn’t really thought about it as an option.
He felt very apprehensive, worried and confused about going through Clearing. However, his experience was very good and finding courses was great and easy, and the universities were really good at responding and the whole experience was easy.
His greatest concerns were that there wouldn’t be any places on the course he wanted to do, that Clearing was just for people who had failed, that he would get lost in the system and that the process was going to be hard and confusing – all of these concerns were unfounded.
‘Don’t panic and don’t assume you’ve failed and you have no chance of going to uni. Keep calm and take the time to find the right place and course for you. Avoid the big negative feelings taking over.’
He says without Clearing he would either be resitting Year 13 or learning a trade.
