Get a Step Ahead

You don't need to wait until you get your exam results before you think about Clearing. There are plenty of things you can do now to prepare yourself in advance, even if you think you know what grades you're likely to achieve.

Plan for Different Outcomes

It is always worth planning for different situations, even if you're confident in what you think you will get in your exams. Consider a few different outcomes so you are fully prepared. You should think about a few different combinations of grades and try to match these to some course entry requirements. You could also consider a range of different courses you might be interested in studying and think about your interests.

Be Ready to Ask and Answer Questions

On the day, find a quiet place to make your calls and make sure you have all your information to hand. This should include your UCAS personal ID number, all of your qualifications including your A Levels or BTECs, and GCSE grades. It is also a good idea to prepare any questions you might want to ask before you contact universities about a place. This can help you to make sure that you're making the right decision. You might also want to ask about our Open Campus events and how to apply for accommodation.

Prepare Your Student Finance

You don't have to wait until you get an offer before you apply for student loans or student finance. When you complete your finance application you can put down the university and course you want to do. Once you have an offer you can go back and update your account with the correct details if these change during Clearing.

Visit Us

To really get a feel of what it might be like to study with us at Lincoln, we recommend that you visit us in person. That's why we're running a series of on-campus events this summer offering you the opportunity to experience Lincoln for yourself.

Register for Clearing Plus

You can also register for Clearing Plus, a matching tool managed by UCAS. If you’re eligible (you’re unsuccessful or applying for the first time) you will be able to see matches via a button in the UCAS Hub. This tool will match university places with your interests and suggest some courses you might like. If you express an interest in a course, the university will contact you.

What If I Already Have a Place?

Clearing self-release allows any applicant who already holds a place at a university, either firm or insurance, to decline it and release themselves into Clearing. You can then apply to a different university or course through Clearing on the UCAS Hub.

You should think carefully before releasing yourself into Clearing. Your existing university place is unlikely to remain open if you change your mind. Changing universities at this stage means also means you’ll have to reapply for accommodation and update your student finance application.

Guaranteed Accommodation

If you're looking to join us through Clearing, you can still make the most of our guaranteed accommodation scheme! We guarantee a room in a University residence to all new students joining us in 2022 who apply for accommodation before 1 September 2022.
