can you apply for a uni on results day if you have subbmitted a ucs form that year Watch
Posted from TSR Mobile
so any random uk citizen that fufills the A level requirements for a uk university can ring up a university that has clearing courses on A level results day and get a place
But they will generally need a completed UCAS application too, with a personal statement and a reference, etc.
In theory the application can be done on the day (but your referee is unlikely to be happy about that...). So that's why you should at least create an application in advance.
Also why leave everything until Results Day? You get much less choice during Clearing and in many cases no guarantee of accommodation either.
That's the first time I've ever heard that it doesn't apply.
OP, to be safe I'd call up UCAS and check
