A Levels 2017: How to find an alternative university place in Yorkshire

If you are one of the 416,310 students to have secured a university place then it's a time for celebration.

If you've impressed the call handler, they will make you a verbal offer, followed by confirmation in writing.

If your firm offer has been confirmed - make sure you contact the college or university to confirm your place.

The Clearing phone lines are now open at the University, with places available on a wide variety of subject areas for those who may not have got the grades they were expecting.

The university also offers a live chat services so course seekers can make instant contact with the Greenwich team of trained clearing advisers.

"The Clearing process has changed significantly in recent years and the option to "trade up" using Adjustment now gives students the opportunity to reconsider their original choice if they have done better than expected in their exams".

In a Daily Mail survey, Sheffield was making "most" courses available for students going through clearing and will guarantee accommodation to any students coming through the process.

More than 4,000 spaces were advertised on the Ucas website, with places still available on competitive courses including medicine, law, English, maths and the sciences.

Didn't get the grades required for your desire university?

Psychologist Dr Mark Moss has some reassuring words for students picking up their A Level results today. Once you've made up your mind, sign in to Track and add your Clearing choice.

Five students have gained places have been accepted onto their courses with either Cambridge and Oxford universities.

'To all those who do secure a place, remember you are embarking on a fantastic, life-enriching stage of your education.

- If you can't get on your first choice course, check to see if there are similar courses at the same university with lower entry requirements. Although we may not be able to offer you the course you originally apply for, we may suggest another course which we feel may suit you based on your previous study and interests.

IT'S a disgusting feeling after weeks of anticipation finding out you've just missed out on that uni place you were so looking forward to. If there's a specific university or college you really want to go to, check out what other courses they're offering.

Ahead of A-level results day, on Thursday, a study by London South Bank University (LSBU) has revealed that more than two-thirds of students who went through the Clearing process found the experience stressful, with nearly 60 per cent claiming they made a snap decision when choosing their university or course.
