    Just wondering if anyone knows of anyone who got into Leeds through Clearing? Im assuming there probably aren't many courses available as it is such a popular university?

    One of the guys I lived with in second year got in through clearing, so it is possible.

    When I called the English department the admissions person told me they (that department) took over 100 people through Extra and Clearing last year. If I remember correctly!

    My cousin got into Leeds for Law through clearing, but it was like 3 yrs ago - (it would be almost impossible to get into Law today though!)

    I don't know how many places they offer all together. The course I've applied for has 20 though.

    Actually the Linguistics department is seperate from the English one now I've looked it up. Linguistics probably gets filled up with people who missed out on the grades for English it's not very popular from what I've read.

    A lot of the courses from the department are pretty specialist too I'd say, so maybe it's a bad representation of clearing numbers.

    Send a PM to Pencil Queen and ask nicely for some numbers she's the resident stats guru on UKL.

    Thanks for your replies, they are very encouraging! However the course I want to do isn't available through UCAS Extra, so I'm guessing it will probably not be in Clearing either :-(

    there will defiantly be lots of places avalible at leeds through clearing...sure the number of unfilled places at the moment is probly quite low as its a popular uni (which would explain not much being availible through ucas extra) but lots of places in clearing come as a result of people not making the grades they need for a course and so not meeting the conditions of their offer and leaving a place on the course and i'm sure that most courses at leeds will have a few places in august to go to clearing people because of that.
