“Not making the A level grades to take up her place at university was an awful shock and disappointment for my daughter. Your consultant supported her through the clearing process and made sure she was also aware of all the re-take options available to her so we could make an informed choice as to what was in her best future interests. Your advice and support made a very worrying time bearable. Thank you.”
- Ahead of your first video call with a Consultant, we’ll ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire to enable our Consultant to better understand your son or daughter’s university aims and objectives. This also helps you and your son or daughter to think through your priorities and why.
- After you’ve completed the online questionnaire we’ll ask you to pay your invoice for the service, so we can get you started by booking your first appointment to speak with one of our expert university Consultants via video call. We will request copies of GCSE, A Level, mock or equivalent exam results, school reports, plus any other supporting documents that help our expert to get to know your son or daughter’s education history, goals and ambitions.
During the first call, your experienced university Consultant will discuss your questionnaire, school reports, exam grades with you and your son or daughter. Collectively, you and your Consultant will create a university plan that’s very individual to your family. You will discuss timings for further video calls, setting a to-do-list for your son or daughter, as well as realistic dates and deadlines to agree your final decision and actions. Some of the things we’ll cover are below:
- How to respond to the initial situation, enabling you and your son or daughter to take swift and focused action depending on the circumstances.
- How to use sources to consider available courses and how to evaluate their appropriateness for your son or daughter’s abilities and aspirations.
- How best to approach the universities about the course options that are of interest and how best to present the strengths of your son or daughter’s application for consideration.
- How to manage the UCAS Clearing service, where relevant facilitating speedy confirmation of course choice.
- How to contact the university and Student Finance about fees, accommodation and registration when your place offer is last-minute.
