It's almost exam results day, which means thousands of students up and down the country face a nervous wait to see what they get.
While the majority of students will be celebrating on 17 August, there'll be some that will be wondering what to do next.
Whether they don't get the grades they need or they do better then expected they can use Clearing or Adjustment to find a place on a university or college course.
If they've already applied for student finance but their course, or university or college changes, they must let us know as soon as possible as it could affect the amount of student finance they can get.
If they haven't applied for student finance yet, they need to apply as soon as possible. The sooner they apply, the sooner we'll be able to process their application.
To support you and your students, we've created some resources that help explain what they need to do and how to do it.
