Students' guide to results day

Who better to tell you about results day than our students who've recently been through it themselves.

We understand that the lead up to receiving your results can be an anxious time. That's why we've asked our current students to share their results day stories with you and offer tips for preparing for the big day.

"It's also important to be surrounded by the right people. I chose to be with friends, who were going through the same thing, and there were teachers around to either celebrate with you or to help if the news wasn't good (and there are always some people that applies to)."

"Before you call any of your options, do a quick bit of reading about the department, the course content, and the university itself. It only needs to be a brief overview but it means you'll have something to talk about if your conversation gets that far. I went down the list calling each one. Some were very quick, others put me on hold for about 35373588 years. Again, just stay calm - you'll get your turn."

Results not what you expected? - a student guide to clearing

Our current students share their stories of coming to York through clearing, the highs and the lows, and reveal their top tips for making the process as stress-free as possible.

"Don’t panic! Ultimately, it is important not to panic. Going through clearing or adjustment may alter your plans. However, studying a new subject in a new city will be rewarding regardless of the path you take to get there."
