Will universities start to accept anyone just to fill in places after all the best people have got in?
For example, clearing spans into September where the majority of people have probably sorted out their university places, so by this time if they still have places for their subjects, would they resort to allowing anyone just to have full classes?
They still have entry requirements. There's no point in them taking people just to fill spaces if those people are not academically capable of managing to cope with the course. Requirements may decrease slightly from normal. Most places will be allocated long before the start of September though. The uni doesn't get fined if they don't fill their classes in the same way as they get fined if they're oversubscribed, so a few empty places isn't the end of the world to them.
Just wondering if anyone knows why some universities are putting people from clearing this year onto next September courses? :/
