Marten Hinz

"I am glad I took the initiative because I ended up loving the place"

Marten Hinz chose Lancaster University through Adjustment, after realising that his expected grades were better than he needed for his existing offer. He advises "if you are considering Adjustment, make sure you know how the process works before A-Level Results Day."

"You can’t lose anything by making a phone call and seeing what options you have"

Daniel Jacklin was accepted to study Law at Lancaster University through Clearing. He didn’t quite get the grades he needed, so decided to give Lancaster a second look.
