It will be fine. Not getting the grades you needed to get into a specific university isn’t the end of the world.
Lucie joined us via Clearing in 2012
Lucie, from Dewsbury, was initially upset when she got her exam results – she was one grade down from what she needed and had planned to study French. She had been made aware of Clearing before she got her results and said she wasn’t planning to use it but was happy it was there. She wasn’t really sure what to expect.
She found the overall experience of Clearing much easier than she expected and said Leeds Beckett in particular made the whole process very straightforward.
Her greatest concern was that it would be a very complex and stressful system which it wasn’t.
She was supported by her teachers at college and her family helped her in making the last minute decisions.
‘Don’t panic! It will be fine. Not getting the grades you needed to get into a specific university isn’t the end of the world.’
She says without Clearing she wouldn’t be where she is now and that it was one of the best things that happened to her. She accepted her place to study History at Leeds Beckett and then completed her MA degree in Social History also at Leeds Beckett. She is now studying for her PhD again at Leeds Beckett.
