    Can I apply for a course at a university that I was originally rejected for?
    I've missed my firm results (didn't put an insurance) but am double checking at 7am that I have/haven't made it in, but they are in clearing for my course so is it likely that they will accept me despite missing by one grade?

    And if I don't make it in, then I'll have to enter clearing and was wondering if you can apply to a course that you were originally rejected for in your initial application and they have now lowered the minimum to meet what you have achieved as results?

    Hope that makes sense, cheers for any help!

    Well I'm assuming that technically you could however... if you missed the grades needed for your firm and the uni is looking to fill up your course in clearing and lowered the grade requirements which your achieved grades meet, its logical you would have already been considered for a place despite not meeting your conditions. So if it still said you were unsuccessful on Track, then surely it means they just don't wish to offer you a place as harsh as that may sound.

    In any case, its best to focus on finding and contacting other universities you would be interested in studying if you did have to use clearing rather then waste time and energy on a place that already had all this time to consider you (apparently uni's recieved results last Friday) and said no. That's my humble opinion anyways. Hope everything goes well for you

    All the advice I have seen so far says to call them first if you still want to go there.

    And good luck!! :-)

    It's going to depend on the exact grades/how many other people missed/the overall strength of your application compared to theirs.

    If you needed ABB and get/think you'll get BBB then I would be worried, because of the new no quota for ABB+ students while still maintaining a quota on people with less than that.

    Don't call up your firm unless you have barely missed a grade (as in, maybe 2-3 UMS marks off the next grade up). You could, but since they already rejected you then they're just going to waste time, because they'll already have considered you.


    As for other universities that rejected you several months ago, you could try them if you like, if they have places and they lowered the grades. There's definitely a chance you could get into those.

    See replies above - you may find that you have been accepted anyway, of course

    I actually called my firm (surrey) at 7am this morning and despite not getting AAB (I got A*BBB) they still accepted me!

    I was just having a freakout last night. Thanks for all the help.
