How Does Clearing Work?

If you don't quite match the grades for your Conditional offer, you can still get a place at university or college through the Clearing system. Clearing isn't a mad scramble for a handful of places, nor is it a 'last-ditch' option - over 40,000 people each year find a place through the system.

The Clearing Process

  • The UCAS Clearing service matches candidates up with suitable higher education vacancies.

  • If you're eligible for Clearing, UCAS will automatically send you a Clearing Entry Form (CEF) and an information booklet.

Remember, Clearing Is Not An Option For You If Any Of The Following Apply:

  • You have withdrawn from the UCAS scheme.

  • Your conditional offer has been confirmed.

  • You decide not to take your confirmed offer.

  • Take a look at our Clearing Q&A for more information.

I Haven't Applied For Anything Yet. What Should I Do?

  • If your grades were better than expected, then well done. It's still not too late to apply for a place at university or college.

  • Entry requirements vary at each university, but usually most degree courses require at least two A Levels at grade E or above (or the equivalent); for HND courses, it's one A Level or the equivalent.

  • For admission to a degree or HND, students must apply through UCAS. You can obtain a UCAS handbook and application form through your careers centre or by contacting UCAS direct.

  • Time is of the essence, so contact UCAS as soon as possible. However, you should still think hard when choosing the type of course and subject to study.

  • If you're applying after the end of June, your application will automatically go through the Clearing system.
