    I know they don't do clearance.
    But perhaps calling up on results day if you get amazing grades.

    You'd be best off reapplying for 2017 entry if you do particularly well.

    I think I can answer this for you - I was in fact rejected from UCL!

    I ended up emailing them asking them to reconsider, saying that my GCSE grades weren't a true reflection of my ability e.g. from a C grade at GCSE in RE to 90% at AS.
    They emailed me back with their questionnaire which is replacement of an interview for some courses and a few weeks later I was made an offer

    I am now both a UCL reject and graduate
