What is Priority Clearing?

Our simple sign-up process gives you access to a priority phone line and online chat service. We also support you in the run-up to results day.

How we can help

If you sign up to Priority Clearing, we can offer you:

  • A call from one of our dedicated Clearing advisers who will be able to answer any queries you have regarding the process
  • Regular updates and top tips from the University while you wait for your results
  • Clearing queue jump on A-Level results day (16 August). You will have a dedicated Priority Clearing phone line, which allows you to jump to the front of our queue and discuss your options
  • Priority Clearing chat service; our instant messaging service allows you to type in your questions and get prompt advice via our website.

Our team of specialist Clearing advisers are also here to help non A-level students who will receive their summer examination grades before 16 August.

All our Priority Clearing applicants will feel confident that they have the right information to apply. They will have direct access to a trained adviser waiting to support them in finding the right course to match their aspirations.

I remember feeling quite confused about what to do when I realised I would have to apply for universities through Clearing. It was nerve wracking contacting universities, but the person I got through to was really understanding.
