GCSE Results

Don’t let the headlines get you down! If you don’t think you got the grades you need at GCSE to be able to go into higher education, think again. There are many ways to get to university that aren’t via the typical A-level route, from college courses to BTEC national diplomas, they can all count towards your UCAS points (points are gained by completing courses – usually A levels or similar, and often converted into UCAS Tariff points). The University will also take into account your suitability for the course as well as any other relevant experience you have gained such as work placements or work experience – so get out there and start working towards your goals!

Clearing

If you didn’t quite get the grades needed to go exactly where you wanted then never fear! Places on courses become available through the “clearing” process due to other students dropping out or courses not being fully booked. This process, which is operated by UCAS, is designed to match people who do not have an offer from a university or college on to a course which still has places available.

You will be able to take part in Clearing if:

– Your Firm or Insurance choice institutions are unable to accept you based on the results you achieve.
– You applied to university this year but did not receive any offers or you declined all your offers.
– You haven’t yet applied for a course during the main 2016 entry cycle or you applied after 30 June 2016.

Clearing 2016 opens on A-level results day, which this year is Thursday 18 August 2016.

If you apply to a course through the Clearing system you may mean you need to find accommodation quickly! Not to worry though, Quarters student accommodation is Coventry’s newest student accommodation provider and can cater for all of your needs! Give us a call today to secure your accommodation for the coming year.

At Quarters Student Accommodation we think its great that Universities are upping the standard of their accommodation, but we’re still not sold on the extensive use of halls of residence. In our experience you can get much better value for your money from a high quality private landlord and avoid being crammed into 6 – 7 bedroom flats with a single bed and tiny shower cubicle. Who wants to live with 6 strangers anyway!?

We believe that just because you’re a student doesn’t mean you should have to live in this way, and will only offer pre-approved, spacious, well decorated properties with high quality shared spaces to our customers, where you can choose to live with as many or as few of your friends / colleagues as you like!
