UNIVERSITY READY FOR A-LEVEL RESULTS DAY

 

Admissions staff at the University of Lincoln will be waiting at the end of a telephone next month to advise A-level students of their options after exam results day.

 

Students will know their results on Thursday 14th August 2003, and those who have not managed to get a place at a university of their choice will get a second chance through the Clearing system.

 

Clearing is the final stage of the UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) applications process and exists to help students who are still without a place in higher education after receiving their results.

 

The University of Lincoln’s Clearing call centre will once again be based in the Learning Resource Centre at the Lincoln campus (Brayford Pool), where around 100 academics and admissions staff will be on hand to answer questions and offer students places on courses starting in September 2003.

 

The clearing hotline number for all students is 01522 886622 and the call centre will be open as follows:

 

14th August      8am to 8pm

15th August      8am to 6pm

16th August      9.30am to 4pm

17th August      10am to 3.30pm

18th - 22nd August    8.30am to 5.30pm

23rd - 25th August    Closed

26th August                         Normal office hours 8.30am - 5pm

 

The university will also stage special clearing open days at its campuses in Lincoln and Hull to allow school-leavers to check out the facilities before they decide to enrol:

 

Lincoln Brayford Pool                         Saturday 16th August 10am – 3pm

Wednesday 20th August 10am – 3pm

Hull Queens Gardens                                  Friday 15th August 10am – 3pm

                                                                        Tuesday 19th August 10am – 3pm
