    I've (so far) not made my UCAS this year as I've just left university and didn't believe I'd have enough time to apply again this time around. However I know clearing is an option but I'm unsure if its an option available for me.
    I haven't applied to any courses, nor made an application, to be rejected from and then put automatically into clearing. Can I create an application after the 15th January and submit it straight away even though it's past the deadline or do I wait till clearing is available in August then make an application after contacting the university about left over places.
    I really appreciate the help anyone has! I hope I've been clear in explaining it. Just so panicked I feel like I'm just getting word vomit haha

    You need to have an application in order to enter clearing and it isn't best done in a hurry, so make one well in advance. You can submit an application at any time. Before 15th Jan it gets equal consideration, between then and 30th June it will be considered if they have places, and after 30th June it gets put straight into clearing, although obviously that doesn't open until results day. You have nothing to lose and probably something to gain by putting one in asap, certainly so if you can get it in by the 15th.

    Thanks very much, I'd been searching on the UCAS site and I didn't know you could even be considered after the deadline but before clearing. Such a help!!

    Extra opens in late Feb, so you can have two bites at the cherry if you apply sooner - see if any normal courses give you an offer before then, and if not, you have Extra.

    If you're applying late you can contact unis beforehand and see if they will consider your application. They should tell you if not, so you don't waste a choice
