Buckinghamshire New University Clearing
Clearing is the last opportunity for those applicants not holding a Higher Education place to be considered by institutions who still have course vacancies. Clearing is primarily used by applicants who have applied after Sunday 30 June 2013 or by applicants who haven’t achieved the grades required by the institutions they are holding conditional offers with.
Am I eligible?
You are eligible to use the clearing service if you:
UÊ have not yet applied through UCAS for 2013 entry but are interested in studying UÊ are currently in the UCAS scheme and have not withdrawn
UÊ are not holding offers from another institution (you must request that your current institution release you into clearing before you can accept a place to another institution)
UÊ have not met the conditions of your offer UÊ have declined all your offers.
When an applicant becomes eligible for clearing, you will automatically be allocated a clearing number and an ‘add clearing choice’ button on UCAS track becomes available.
What is adjustment?
This process allows applicants who have met and exceeded the terms of their conditional firm offer, and have been accepted onto that course, to be eligible to enter an ‘adjustment period’. This allows an applicant to find a course at a different institution whilst still holding a place.
This process is available from A-level results day, Thursday 15 August, until Sunday 31 August 2013. As soon as an applicant’s application is confirmed, they will have five calendar days to secure a place on an alternative course. It is important to note that selecting this option could affect other factors such as accommodation availability and student finance.
