A-level results day is just around the corner, so many students will be turning to you for help. We’re here to help make sure they have all the information they need to get their student finance sorted as quickly as possible with our new Clearing guidance page.


Students who have not applied yet

We’re advising students who’ve not applied yet, #DontDelayYourPay and apply now for student finance to get their funding as early as possible. They might be awarded the minimum amount of student finance, but this is to make sure they get some money as early as possible until we process their household income details.


Students who have applied already

Students who already have an application and accept a place at university through Clearing will need to sign in and update their application. It only takes #3ClicksToClearing to get ready for results day:


  1. Sign in to their online account
  2. Change the university, college or course details
  3. Submit, sit back and relax - we’ll take it from here

It is taking 6 to 8 weeks to process any new applications or changes to existing applications.


We’ve created some resources for you to use with your students and share on your website and social media.

Encourage students to visit our Clearing page on GOV.UK where students can find everything they need to know about #Clearing2021.
