    I just wanted to know whether universities are allowed to save spaces for students who have already applied but might get their results in September due to unique circumstances such as more coursework being sent off to be marked in September. I was curious as to whether universities would take this into consideration or not.

    In exceptional circumstances universities can hold an offer as conditional past the 31st August - this usually only gets used for courses with non-academic requirements (eg occupational health and DBS checks).

    If you're getting any work remarked then you need to get a priority remark ASAP. Getting work remarked in September is unlikely to be acceptable - in cases where applicants have their grades increased (even sometimes before the 31 August deadline) then universities are more likely to offer a deferred place.
