Just in case you need to support them through the Clearing process – or to go out and celebrate.
When the day finally arrives, remember to stay calm. Your son or daughter will be able to check UCAS track in the morning to find out if they got into their first choice. They’ll still need to go into school to collect their results – so remind them to take their Plan B list with them, and a mobile phone with full battery so they can go through Clearing if needs be.
No doubt they’ll be disappointed if they don’t get their predicted grades. You, on the other hand, will be proud of them whatever they’ve achieved. But the important thing is to reassure them that they do have options.
