    If universities post their clearing grade requirements, are they solid and not willing to change/go lower?

    Ask an academic today and the answer is they are solid. Ask an academic a week into clearing who knows that his department is not sustainable with the number of students he has recruited that year, and the answer may be different.

    If i'm changing my course and going through clearing, do i need to have a new personal statement at hand in case? I checked on UCAS and they said some ask for a new one but some don't.
    Not sure what to do..

    I'm looking at a Russell Group science course, which previously offered AAA/AAB, and it IS in clearing without specified grades at the moment. My worst case scenario is ABB, so worth a try on results day?
    Hey
    If the clearing grades are specified do you know where I would be able to find them?
    On the university website? Or on a clearing list somewhere? Thanks ^-^

    Remember though, the removal of student number controls doesn't apply to NHS-funded courses.

    Hey, some of them were released a week or so ago, but the majority have gone now. Those ones could be found through the telegraph clearing list. I was looking at Southampton and Leicester
    I believe universities are mostly presenting their own clearing lists on their websites on Tuesday/Wednesday - and these are the ones where people have missed their offers etc.
    That's where I will be looking anyway, but the full list can of course be found on results day with the Telegraph

    Ok

    I looked on the Scottish clearing list on the ucas website (which is already open) and it didn't list grades next to the courses. (Not even Scottish highers grades)

    Are Scottish courses just different? Or am I looking in the wrong place or something?

    They might have grades listed on the entry requirements tab, if not then I d say check the uni website as not all the unis seem to put all their requirements on ucas.

    Clearing offer grades aren't passed to UCAS. The details on UCAS are those that applied to the course back in September.
    (Original post by Lissy14)

    No they won't. Before ringing any uni you should check their website first to see if the course still has space (UCAS course search lags behind by around an hour). If they have published lower grades for clearing then it will be on the website ( if not then 1-2 grades below the standard offer is a reasonable rule of thumb)

    What do you all recommend we do to prepare for all outcomes on Thursday? Should I have a potential lists of other unis & their contact info if I have to go through clearing? Is it guaranteed that my course will say unsuccessful/unconditional at 8AM Thursday?

Yes, if you are genuinley frightened. Is it guaranteed that my course will say unsuccessful/unconditional at 8AM Thursday? No. 3/20 won't have updated because of no decision being made yet, missing exam results or the information not being passed on to Ucas yet.

    So if before clearing the offer was BBB but during clearing it still stands at BBB and I get BBC am I waisting my time ringing or would they just not have updated the website?
