    When clearing comes, and you're ringing universities up for places, do they interview you at all? just so I know I'm prepared if so

    Some will. I was invited to an interview at UWE two years ago.
    Not all will. But some. It just depends on the course (healthcare ones tend to like interviews in my experience).
    Some will phone interview, some will want face to face.

    Universities during clearing only care about filling places and at that stage don't care who takes em, so long as they're filled.
    My mates who got in through clearing said they got grades X,Y,Z and no criminal records and they were in. =)

    EDIT:
    Well, first I've heard of that, person above me. =l

    I got invited to interview at UWE for Radiotherapy. And Liverpool were bringing people over for the same thing (they'd wanted to bring me but my application got lost in their system or something). It does happen, but these were both for medical-related degrees. Other degrees may be more lenient - with those ones, they're funded by the NHS and they really want to make sure the person who's there is really wanting to be on the course rather than just 'well, that looks like it might be alright and I have the grades'.
