We spoke to the following students at Brighton College:
Tessa Hutchinson, who studied Politics, Economics and Maths and got 3 As.
Katy Lucas, who studied Philosophy, Psychology and English Literature. She got 2 A* and an A.
Hector Bunt, who studied Maths, Physics and Politics and got 2 As and 2 Bs.
Thousands of students who do not get the results they hoped for still get places at university through clearing. Here's how it works.
