“On results day when I was heartbroken over my very much lowered results and the decline of my place at an amazing uni, I received an SMS from you guys to apply for Clearing at XYZ University... 10 minutes later they called me and I had a place... I cannot express how thankful I am... I don’t know where I would have been without this message. It truly came through at the best time it could have.” - The Student Room user
We will be as flexible as we can, which means that it may be possible to switch your subject audience for your second send after you've reviewed your Results Day applications. You can also send us new copy. Second sends are subject to availability.
