    Sounds like your university ain't popular mate
    what, because they have clearing vacancies?
    the vast majority of unis in this country have spaces available via clearing pal.

    Correction: there are quite a few universities that DO NOT enter clearing, for example for politics 104 institutions are in clearing.

    No they don't (72 unis for History) . This uni is the worst of the Russell group league table wise and quite frankly ain't popular

    so you're telling me more universities don't enter clearing than those that do?
    I honestly don't believe that.

    oh you're saying it's not popular because it's not highly rated in terms of the RG league tables?

    In that case, fair enough. I thought you were saying it's unpopular because it's in clearing, even though I know of at least 11 russell group unis that are in clearing this year.

    I wasn't talking about history, I'm talking about unis in clearing full stop.
    I still believe there are more unis nationwide that have clearing places available than those that dont, I mean at least nearly half of the RG unis have got places available.

    I would like to ask a question, I've originally applied for international business management. however, if I have to go through clearing (Newcastle is my top choice) would I be able to switch into a different course? I am considering doing Modern Languages and Business Studies (Japanese)
    thank you

    Hi,

    You can certainly apply for a different subject through Clearing - you will need to tell the admissions tutor why you want to focus on a language and make sure you address anything that might have been left out of your original personal statement.

    Modern Languages and Business Studies is currently in the list of courses we expect to have places for

    Good luck!

    Clearing was quite stressful for me last year, but you’ve just got to keep calling up and checking different uni’s to see if they’ll take you. Remember that a lot of people go through clearing so you’re not alone! I managed to get into a really great uni (Bristol) but they didn’t have any accommodation. I did manage to get a room at Fusion Students and that was honestly the best decision ever, the rooms they have are awesome. Now I’m two years into my course and having a great time at uni so good luck on results day guys!
