Today, Thursday 16 August, sees A levels results being announced. The Clearing hotlines at Warwick opened at 8am this morning, enabling prospective students to contact us to discuss courses if they missed specific offer conditions, or if they want to change the university or course they originally selected. Many staff are involved in Clearing and Adjustment at this time, answering phone calls and dealing with queries from prospective students - thank you to all those involved.
What is Clearing and Adjustment?
Clearing is the undergraduate application process run by UCAS that advertises university places that are yet to be filled, and it’s available from early July to mid-September. Students who are waiting for A level results are able to apply for places from the morning of results day (16 August). Adjustment is for those students who have met and exceeded the conditions of their conditional firm offer.
In 2017, over 64,300 applicants nationally obtained their university place through clearing and adjustment – demonstrating that this is an increasingly valuable stage in the recruitment process for home and international students.
The Clearing 2018 pages should give you all the information you need to help signpost queries.
