    Hi! Clearing is the process you may go through if you rejected your offers or vice versa. The universities that are available through clearing are those that have spaces left in particular courses.

    Edit: Additional information. Clearing may be available if other individuals rejected the offer given to them by universities or if all the spaces haven't been filled yet. Many good universities are available through clearing.

    Clearing: for people who missed their required grades, uni courses with clearing are not full and you have to contact them personally.
    Adjustment: for people who did better than their required grades and want to go to a better uni or change to a course with higher requirements
