Students with no back-up plan

More than half of students in England and Wales have no back-up plan if they fail to get the grades they need, finds research for Which? University.  Some fifty-four percent of A-level candidates with conditional offers say they have not thought about what to do if their results are poorer than expected.  Almost three-quarters of applicants (70%) have not researched the clearing process for unfilled degree places.  Researchers questioned 1,012 seventeen and eighteen year-olds in England and Wales.  Of these, 939 were holding conditional offers of places, dependent on their A-level results next week.  Forty-eight percent said they were confident they would get the grades for their first choice.
