    During Clearing, will York ever go lower than their entry requirements or does this strictly never occur? I know you won't be able to reliably answer in a general sense but I just would like to know if it is a possibility.

    Hiya,

    We can't say for certain at the moment as it depends on the results that current offer holders obtain on results day. It is possible that some courses may relax their entry requirements for committed and enthusiastic students - the best thing to do is to keep checking our website which will have the most up-to-date information.

    You can always sign up for vacancy alerts, which means you'll be notified if courses you are interested in become available in clearing.

    I hope that's helpful. Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Hi,

    Our clearing helpline will be open from 8am on results day. However, if you already know your results and would like to enquire about available courses, you can contact our admissions office on +44 (0)1904 324000.

    Hope that's helpful,

    I'm wondering, are the subjects on the clearing vacancy list the only subjects that may be available? I'm interested in biochemistry, or biosciences, but they are not an option, so does that mean there aren't going to be spaces?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    At the moment, the subjects on the clearing vacancy list are the only ones that are available. However, this could change on results day, so check back on Thursday morning to make sure!

    I have been offered a place over the phone- but I'm really worried as to how long it will take to be confirmed on track (I've added it on my clearing choice now) because I'm worried about sorting accommodation, finance e.t.c. ASAP. Any help/ indication?

    Hiya,

    How long it will take to confirm on track depends on the department and when you were offered your place - our admissions team are working as fast as they can!

    Don't worry too much - you'll be guaranteed accommodation if you apply by Friday 29th August. You'll get an email through once your place has been confirmed giving you further details of what to do next, including Student Finance, and inviting you to a visit day next Tuesday.

    It's worth remembering that students will continue to be accepted through clearing right into next week, so whilst I know you're anxious to get everything sorted now, it's really not too late.You'll have plenty of time to organise things

    For the moment, try to relax and celebrate - you have a place!
