Clearing Frequently Asked Questions

Around 10% of all students come through Clearing each year. Improve your chance of finding the right course by knowing what you need to do.

Can I use clearing?

You can use Clearing if you:

  • apply after 30 June
  • didn't receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • didn't meet the conditions of your offers

When can I use clearing?

  • It's available July to September each year.
  • If you already have your exam results but you have no offers, you can use Clearing from July.
  • If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, you can use Clearing from results day.

Where can I find my Clearing number?

If you're eligible for Clearing, your Clearing number will be on the welcome page and 'Your choices' section of Track.

How do I add a Clearing choice?

Go to the 'Your choices' section of Track and click 'Add Clearing choice'. Then enter the details of the course. Only add a Clearing choice if you're offered a place and you want to accept it.

I've been offered a place over the phone what do I do now?

  • Go to UCAS and accept the offer
  • Add a Clearing choice in Track

Please only add a Clearing choice once you've had confirmation from the university that they're happy to offer you a place.

Click 'Add Clearing choice' and fill in the course details by the date the university/college gave you on the phone. This counts as you accepting the offer. So if they confirm it'll show as an acceptance on the choices page of Track and we'll send you a confirmation letter.

You can only add one choice at a time, but if the university/college doesn't confirm your place, you'll be able to add another.

Why hasn't Track updated?

Track will update once the uni makes a decision. If you've met the conditions of your offer, your place will be confirmed soon.
