Sounds good! What do I do next?

Clearing is open from 5th July to 18th October.

If you are still waiting for your exam results, you may need to wait until this time to apply. For most students, A level and T level results day is on the 18th of August. If you already have your exam results, then hey, the world’s your Clearing oyster!
