Parents' guide

We understand that Clearing is an experience that brings with it a whole range of emotions - for both parents and their children.

If your child is going through Clearing, take a look at our top tips for parents below:

Stay positive and support them

We understand it can be a stressful time, but it’s important to remember that there are plenty of options available. If any feelings of anxiousness arise, remember to remain positive and make sure that they know that there are plenty of options.

Let them lead

Be there if they need you, but let them take the lead and make their own decisions.

Have a pen and notepad at the ready

Jot down any important information that your child is told over the phone so that they can refer back to it at a later date when Results Day is over.

Let them make the calls

Whilst we love talking to parents, it’s a good idea to let your child talk to us over the phone. This way, if any questions arise during our conversation, we can answer them straight away.
