On the university's website, clearing places for some courses are already listed. Does that mean there wasn't enough applicants or those who applied didn't achieve the required grades?
Is it also more likely that if you get one grade lower in those course that the uni will still accept you?

I don't think it will as simple as any one of those situations.

It could be that for some courses, enough people didn't get the grades and the university thinks it can get better students via clearing. It could be not enough applicants, not enough good applicants, not enough people accepting offers. Or most likely a combination.

It's hard to say what a uni would do if you get a grade lower - though I'm guessing if you're hoping to get in to Sussex, then you'll have found out by now - so good luck and hope you get a place at the uni and on the course of your choice!

Thank you! I got one grade down but the university still accepted me and I'm so excited to start!

Awesome!

That's really good news.

Hope you like it down here in Brighton (TSR is based in Brighton)
