Start calling your chosen universities/ college as soon as you can once receiving the results. You need to contact them directly and you need to contact them in person and always remember to give a good first impression. The admissions staff member will ask for your clearing number, which will enable them to open your Track screen and look at your application, which will show all your results and personal statement and will decide.
If you are eligible for a place and there is still one available, the admissions staff member will probably ask you some questions most likely like a mini interview so please be prepared show your interest and show a very good impression and your ambition. . These questions from the university are not designed to catch you out, but to see if you are good fit for the course and your interest.
The university/College may then make you a verbal offer. There are no conditional offers in clearing as you have already received your results and they may they would like to call you back. Verbal offers usually come with time limits, so you may have a chance to think about it.
You need to be yourself on track and keep yourself well prepared. Once you accept an offer, you will need to update your Track screen as the university/ college will not update your Track for you. All you will need to do is click on the option which allows you to add a clearing choice.

Importantly if you have received the results you have wanted, just updating your Track screen will not be enough. You will also have to contact the university directly and tell them that you have accepted their offer. Ask the University how they would like you to do this, some University/college will want you to send a letter; others will accept an email. Make sure you keep a record of what offers are made and ask how the offer will be confirmed and in what time frame for admission to university/ college.
