    Hmm my course is in clearing, yay or nay? I was kind of expecting the grades to be lower? Anyone know if the grades go down in clearing at all? Or are they always the same?

    they had most of their courses in clearing last year, and apparently for every year as well, at least thats what they told me on the phone. I definitely remember they were in clearing for last year though

    also they seem to say they would have courses in clearing on their website

    Why won't the Clearing Vacancies load???? :sad:
    They will sweetheart. Everyone wants to know if their firm/ insurance is in clearing. Hence the webste has thrown a fit.

    Anyone did Arabic unit 1 AS Edexcel? The grade boundaries are really high
    possibly the majority of candidates speak arabic at home, hence really high grade boundries, or lots of A2 people resitting it?

    If my course is in clearing, does that mean anything regarding if I haven't quite got the UCAS points?
    I think it means you have a slightly better chance of being accepted if you haven't met your offer.

    Aha thanks, enjoy Dorset! Um, I'm going to Sussex somewhere, might check out Norwich while I'm there for the uni. It'd be nice to find out your results if you're not too embarrassed :P
    Thanks! And yeah sure, I'll tell you and hopefully I won't need to be embarrased :/ although right now I actually feel sick just thinking about tomorrow haha. Good luck!

    I'm wondering the same as well, I have them as insurance, but now I kinda regret not putting them as firm which I'm likely to miss out on.

    OK so Durham are in clearing for law. That actually happened.
    How did you find that out? That is mental - I recall Durham entering either Clearing/Adjustment last year as they gave out too few offers.

    I just saw Durham in clearing for law and it shocked me! People are going to fight to get it in clearing, I certainly will give it a shot if I end up in clearing!

    If I'm understanding this vacancy thing right then Durham are in clearing for quite a few things. I searched for Physics and they came up.
