UCAS Clearing gives students a second chance to get into university by linking individuals who wish to go to university with universities that have open spots.
If you end up in Clearing, UCAS individually match you to courses that interest you based on what they know about you from your application and what universities and colleges are searching for.
If your application status indicates ‘You are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has begun,’ you’re in Clearing.
Alternatively, you can refuse your firm position by following the on-screen prompts, and your application status changes to ‘You are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has begun.’
If you are qualified for Clearing, your Clearing number will appear in your application under ‘Application status’.
If your application does not state ‘You are in Clearing’ or ‘Clearing has begun,’ it is possible that it is simply waiting for your results to update.
If it’s taking a long time, contact the universities/colleges; they may still be considering you, even if your grades are a little lower than expected.
What Does Clearing Mean In University?
