Using your smartphones...

So guys, we are now just one short week away from A-Level result day. The tension is starting to rise and you will no doubt be starting to panic. I know I was back when I first applied to university.
First of all, a quick recap. When calling us to apply for a place through clearing, please have your UCAS (or GTTR) Personal ID number (and if you have it, your Clearing Reference Number) to hand.
Make sure you are in a place of shelter so that we can clearly hear what you are saying and vice-versa. You may need to write down a phone number or email address so it would also be a very a good idea to have a pen and paper to hand. Calling us from the kebab shop or McDonalds while you order lunch is not ideal.  If you can, call us from a landline as this will avoid reception issues. Our phone number is 0208 331 9000.
At this stage for those of you who are eligible to make a clearing application, we will ask you to send us an email containing a scan of your certificates. For those that do not have access to a scanner, I have a simple fix, using modern technology. Simply use a Smartphone (like a Blackberry or iPhone) to take a picture of your certificates and you can email that image. As long as it is legible we will accept it. If you don’t have an iPhone then I am sure finding a friend who does may be a lot easier than finding a scanner (although most libraries and internet cafes will be able to help you out there).  Email these to and PLEASE PLEASE do NOT forget the‘s’ on the end.
That’s all from me for now...
In closing, just a reminder ... our phone number 0208 331 9000 and our email address (for specific clearing queries) is .
Good Luck next week
