i was just wondering, if you dont get the required grades to go to your first and second choice unis, are you allowed to do a different course through clearing.
so say the first choice requires ABB
second choice requires BBB.
say you get BCC and are not accepted by them, are you allowed to see if you can get into a whole new course via clearing. i.e you apply for English but dont get in so in clearing apply for history?
Yes you can think about all the poor medics who get rejected...they HAVE to do something else if they want to go to uni. However the uni will raise eyebrows if say you wanna go from Zoology to Law.....a big change so they'll ask questions.
Except that you're meant to (I think) send your application to whatever course at whatever uni you're trying to get into through clearing, so in your example, you'd be applying for History with a personal statement aimed at English. Still possible but something to be aware of.
how different is law from social work? i spose quite different...
Unis know people will change their mind. So they won't care too much about your PS. It would be a good idea to write a new one if you're changing the course you're applying to and send them that. But they'll base things more on discussions with you (over the phone and face to face).
Yes you can. Thats the reason clearing was set up!
