    Accepting that Clearing places will vary year on year according to availability, but if say you found yourself in Clearing and met the grades for a previous declined offer - does anyone have any first hand experience of how Uni's handle Clearing applications from those thst had originally declined. Do they even care or are they snooty about being knocked back?

    Perhaps it varies by institution? I'm thinking of Plymouth specifically here?

    I'm sure the official line is ' we review each Clearing application on a case by case basis' blah blah.....but what's the experiences of anyone who's been in this situation please?

    They won't care. If they made you an offer before, then there is no reason they wouldn't take you via clearing if, as you say, you met their original requirements.
