My degree: BA Liberal Arts (majoring in English with proficiency in French)
I hadn’t really thought about about studying abroad before the release of my exam results, but I applied to UK universities as a back-up plan so decided to apply for a subject I was quite interested in. Once I got my results I found that I couldn’t apply for my subject in local Hong Kong universities so I turned to Clearing for more options.
If you’ve applied through UCAS and are very worried, or even absolutely certain that your exams did not go well at all, you might be looking into Clearing right now. It seems extremely uncertain and daunting, but what you can always do is call the universities you’re interested in attending and ask if you could talk to someone to discuss options with you. After you’ve received your results and are either unhappy with your options or haven’t received the grades needed for them, you’ll be going through Clearing. (more…)
