Future BU student in The Guardian on clearing experience

Posted on Tuesday, August 27 2013

Future BU student Rohan Advani spoke to The Guardian about his experiences with applying to university through Clearing.

When Rohan Advani didn’t get the top grades he needed to get into medical school and follow in his grandmother’s footsteps to become a doctor, he was initially a little troubled. “On results day, I was devastated,” he said, ” I didn’t get my first choice or my insurance offer. It seemed that being a doctor was out of the question”.

After reconsidering, Advani called Bournemouth University and applied to study through Clearing and is now happy to start an engineering degree in September.

“I love my course, its brilliant. I have been given a second chance to move into a good career with decent prospects and I can still study medicine if I want to through a postgraduate medical degree”, he added
