    I was just wondering if you can go into clearing after you have finished your A levels for example if you had not applied to uni but are taking a gap year and performed worse then you have thought

    You need to submit a UCAS application. After that, yes you can.

    Hi lolatron102939

    Hope you're well!

    Clearing is available to students who are not currently holding offers from any universities (i.e. they didn't accept any or didn't apply), students who applied late (after 30th June) or who don't meet the conditions of their offer(s). Therefore, once you have your A Level results, you can technically enter Clearing. Alternatively, if you'd like to take a gap year, you can apply to go to uni through the normal UCAS process.

    Hope this helps! If you need any more information, just let me know!

    OP still has to make a standard Ucas application before they can enter Clearing, just to make that clear.
