Is Clearing Unfair? watch

Announcements

    Clearing has already started for Scottish students. Do they have an unfair advantage over English/Welsh students who won't be able to enter Clearing until the 14th?

    Exactly, it should start on the same day for all students.

    Universities know that only Scottish Highers enter clearing today and (accoring to my tutor) they are generally reluctant to make offers if they feel that there will be more students (with improved grades) applying on the 14th. I think that unless they are confronted with someone that surpasses the entry requirements by some way, they would probably try and delay the process by asking for the student to wait for the Thursday (assuming they feel they can attract a "better" applicant).

    I think that the Independant produces Scottish vacancy lists today, but don't believe they can start applying through Clearing until Thursday.

    Though, this still allows them to entr clearinng a few hours before us, as we get our results at average 10:00. Unless UCAS open at around that time.
