    Having had a gap year and applying for this September, recently received a no from Manchester being one grade off for business management. Manchester is really where i see myself and would love to go, seeing as i already have my grades is there anything i can do to try?? Is the uni often in clearing for business courses? Dont want to decline the offers i have and then not be in clearing!!

    Thanks

    As you already have a rejection it's unlikely they ll reconsider you in clearing, sorry

    Hey there, I was in the same situation when I received a rejection from them a few weeks back. You could try asking for feedback on the decision, and if you think it was made unfairly, you could always appeal against the decision. Hope it all goes well for you

    Keep trying! I'm on a gap year too, and I got offered a place for a course that I missed out by one grade. Albeit it's in Cardiff Uni.

    I actually didn't go through the appeal process; just emailed to ask and they said that I didn't provide enough info on my predicted grades and asked me to send them through again so they can reassess. No word yet, but I've told them I'm doing the IELTS test soon (I'm an international student), so maybe they want to wait till I've got results for that
