Here are our top tips in staying calm and looking after yourself during Clearing:

Take time out from social media

There can be a lot of pressure viewing results of other students on social media. Limit your screen time post and pre results day, collect your thoughts and focus on yourself. Switching off your phone switches off your mind from all these distractions.

Talk to someone

If you’re feeling anxious or worried about Clearing, air it out with someone. Speaking up usually makes you feel a lot better and improves your outlook on a situation. What good is bottling up your emotions?

Look after yourself during Clearing

Try to not let Results Day and Clearing consume your mind. Wind down on the evening and make sure you value your sleep, results day will been a busy one, so make sure you get some well needed rest on the night.

Write down your thoughts

Making note of what you want to do and where you want to be is great to manifest your ambitions on Results Day. It is also a great way to get clarity on how you may be feeling, allowing you to understand and approach Clearing with a focused and optimistic mind-set.

Final words

Beating stress and worry on Results Day is important to ensure you don’t overwhelm yourself. Taking the time during Clearing to make the right University choice for you is key to ensure you don’t feel pressured into making a decision immediately. In addition, a worried mind often makes rash rather than logical decisions!

Furthermore, A Level Results Day will be a different experience for everyone. It can be hard to not compare your results to your peers, focus on yourself and make sure to take all the opportunities Clearing presents you with.
