Going through clearing can be hard, especially when you're bombarded with advice from your parents, friends and teachers but ultimately, it’s up to you to decide.

Does it have good accommodation? Are there lots of societies? How far away from home will you be? Although moving to a brand new city has its perks, you may need to find a compromise.

Calling universities also provides you with the opportunity to ask them questions, so if there’s something you’d like to know, don’t be afraid to ask.
