A-level results day can be a blur of activity and emotion, particularly for those at the centre of it; so being prepared in advance will help you stay calm and make the best decisions for your next steps.
The University of Lincoln Clearing centre opens at 7.30am.
There are lots of other people in the same boat as you. If you don't get through the first time then keep calm and keep trying.
Don't call from school with friends, it is noisy and distracting and you need to focus on your future.
Have your results in front of you when you call. Ensure that if you are put through to an admissions tutor, you are ready to sell yourself, and tell us why you would like to study the course you are interested in.
We have a full list of courses available at the University of Lincoln through Clearing. Don't be afraid to ask questions. If someone offers you a course and you don't know what it is, ask them for more information.
Get support from family and friends but remember this is your choice, you are the one who will be studying the subject so choose something you love.
Three years is a long time to call somewhere home - make sure you go and look around and that you like it. Visit one of our Open Campus events.
Make sure your mobile is fully charged and that you have a pen and paper to hand to keep notes of who you spoke with. Don't ask your mum and dad or friends to call as Universities will not be able to speak to them.
Get your offers in writing.
This area has been specifically created with applicants in mind and aims to support your journey towards studying at the University. You will be able to find information to help you to start planning your next steps before you arrive at the University of Lincoln.
We want you to have all the information that you need prior to starting University and that is why we hold regular live online Q&A sessions. You will be able to ask our team of advisors questions about everything including entry requirements, fees, bursaries and scholarships; plus anything else you can think of.
