    Lots of Uni's are in clearing purely because the cap was removed by the government about how many ABB and AAB above students they are allowed to take on right? I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing

    Am I screwed if I get CCDU at AS?
    Nope. I got DDC in my first AS year, retook and decided to actually take my education seriously, got AAB, and now have a uni offer of AAA. I was scared that unis wouldn't give me offers because of my first results but I got all of them.
    All is not lost!

    This may sound like a stupid q, but I generally don't know as my course is not in clearing. But where can you see which courses are in clearing?

    So does this mean if you are in clearing with ABB, you are pretty much sorted? Where does that leave the BBB/BBC students?

    DURHAM is in clearing? My course. Does that mean loads of people missed their offers? THIS WORRIES ME.
    Do you have a list of courses at Durham that are in Clearing? I can't find them on the website.

    Edit: Silly me, I never knew you could search on the UCAS website.

    7 hours and 21 minutes guys. Not like the last 2 years and next 3/4 (or more I guess!) depend on this or anything. Nope. Not at all.

    It's official. I hate the words "You'll be fine". They don't reassure me AT ALL.
    Luckily, I have 900 more pages of 'A Dance With Dragons' to finish off until exam results are posted at 6am. Thank you George R.R Martin for writing this series. :bhangra:

    I'm incredibly confused. I've just had a look at clearing on the ucas website, and there's quite a lot of competitive pharmacy courses including those at reputable universities.
    The Birmingham admissions tutor told me that he got twelve applicants per place for MPharm last year, so how could the course be on clearing this year? ...
    Most pharmacy unis are in clearing, unsurprisingly.

    Birmingham you mean got 12 applicants per place for this year! This is the first year birmingham are running the MPharm course.

    It's basically where universities offer up their unfilled places on their courses to students who either haven't applied somewhere else or haven't met their previous offers. However in some cases it allows people to go to better courses if they have done better than expected does that make sense?
