Thousands of South Wales students will receive their A-level results on Thursday and find out if they have got a place at their chosen university.
Many students may need to apply for university places through Clearing if they have not secured the grades the need or if they wish to apply for another course or university.
One in 10 students were placed through Clearing last year, and courses with vacancies will be live to view from 6pm on Wednesday evening, August 16th.
Applicants can log into Track on the UCAS website from 8am on results day (August 17th) to see if their place has been confirmed, or if they are eligible to use Clearing – the system which matches unplaced applicants with suitable vacancies.
Universities and colleges will speak with qualified applicants and can make verbal offers from the morning onwards.
After doing their research and speaking to admissions offices, students can then confirm their Clearing choice in Track from 5pm.
