    (pasted in nursing as well) just wondered if any nursing students can tell me this as im waiting for clearing now. i applied for nursing (adult) and got rejected.. changed my personal statement and applied for another nursing course..got interview and was unsuccessful..just wondering rather than go through extra and risk getting another unsuccessful i should go through clearing instead? also if i applied to uni then put in another personal statement and ring again through clearing for a different course in uni are they likely to give me a chance? i know it says to be flexible and open in clearing (which i obviously am) but that will be my third course applied to (nursing) - i do have the grades to get in but think i didnt demonstrate enough knowledge of the role (thats the feedback for the first time and i know thats what let me down at interview the second time). hopefully though that will give me a few months to research/do some more volunteering etc. im hoping it wont go against me - i know some people have applied for totally different courses before and then got in through clearing with no questions asked about the change of heart..but think its more difficult when you actually get an interview at this stage. can anyone give me any advice as i would ideally like to get a place this year.

    You can go through extra and apply to a university. If you get rejected you can apply to another. If you get rejected you can apply to another - and so on. Clearing doesn't open till July, so you can go through Extra and if you get nothing, then go through Clearing.

    If you want to go through extra you have to phone the university before applying though as they may not have spaces, and you have to ask if they'll consider you with your grades etc.

    Also, I don't believe many Nursing courses go in to clearing. And when you apply for Nursing, most require you to sit an English and Maths exam... so you might want to brush up on your English skills.
