    ...can universites still accept you through UCAS before the 18th of August?

    Say you miss your offer by one grade, can a university choose to accept you anyway through UCAS(ie not through clearing or ringing them up)

    if you miss your offer, you can get a place through clearing. If you miss your offer from a uni, that particular uni may still accept you but it depends how popular their course was and what results people got.

    Yep, if they still have places left because quite a few others missed their grades too.

    I think what he means, is can universities accept you before you know your results, even if you haven't met the terms of the offer?

    I think if you need AAB and get ABB, for example, and lots of people miss their offers, they may just decide to take you anyway, and this might appear on UCAS track before you've got your results. They might look back at your form, decide they liked your PS, and accept you.

    Depends on the course really, like i'm (hopefully) doing medicine and i've got no chance of them taking me if i miss my offer, just cause the course is sooo oversubscribed. boooo!
