Hi,
Just thought of having this tread for Medicine clearing discussion and helping each other during our difficult period.

Good luck to everyone for your dream to become a doctor. However I am sure this page will help someone during their difficult period. I would appreciate, if you could share the details here, what you have collected from others.

Hope some of the students who used clearing to secure a medicine seat will also share their experience. Since you already experienced this route, please provide tips.....Thanks.
Clearing doesn’t open until next July :confused:

As said, the medical UCAS deadline has just passed and you are thinking clearing?! Talk about being pessimistic!

If you wanted to know what happened about 2 - 3 months ago (Medicine Clearing for 2018), go to this thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=5377422

Do you know how Clearing works? If not read https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/r.../what-clearing

If you declined that HYMS offer / all offers so you have no offers by July, then yes you can go through Clearing for (any) medical school which happens to offer it.

From 5 July to 23 October, you can apply for a course using Clearing if you’re not already holding an offer from a university or college, and the course still has places.

You can use Clearing if:
  • you’re applying after 30 June (doesn't apply to you)
  • you didn’t receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
  • you didn’t meet the conditions of your offers (you wouldn't know yet)

This thread will remain locked until early / middle of next year when people have actually received 4 rejections / turned down their offers, and they start to think about Clearing.

Hi all,

I'm a Scottish school leaver and applied to university for 2019 entry. Unfortunately I've been rejected by all 4 of my choices and although my next step is to do really well in my exams in May and then take a gap year, I am still going to look into Clearing for 2019 entry because I would very much rather go straight into medicine this year than have to take a year out.

I was wondering if there's anyone on the same boat as me? Don't really know how Clearing works or if all universities do it but as Dundee is my first choice I would really hope to get place there. I'll probably try phoning up as well on results day if I get the results I need.

Here are my stats:

UKCAT: 625.5 Band 3
Scottish Highers: 7As
Predicted Grades: 1A and 2Bs at Advanced Higher, A at Higher
Applied to: Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, St Andrews

Just to provide a bit of context, medical schools only actually entered clearing just 3 years ago so it's not guaranteed it will happen again...

It is likely that if it does happen generally they will offer places to those who have already been interviewed and were unsuccessful in the absence of concerning features. This is because it is against admission standards to admit applicants without interview.

Interviewed at any uni or to that particular uni gone into clearing?

Likely at that uni - for example it would hardly seem fair if you were on the reserve list for say, Leeds and they offered the place to someone who didn't have an interview there.

If a uni has a reserve list then why will they be open for clearing in the first place?
Unis will then simply use their reserve list to send offers without the hassle of clearing.
Does that make sense?

Presumably so - unless they do extra interviews? I'm not sure, I've don't think Leeds ever have but perhaps other unis have done extra interviews around clearing?

Uni's who entered medicine clearing last year held additional interviews a week or two after A level results day. Making offers to candidates who have already been interviewed does not require "clearing".

https://digital.ucas.com/courses/det...micYearId=2019
and
https://digital.ucas.com/courses/det...micYearId=2019
Are still showing as having vacancies on UCAS course search.
You need to ring them to confirm whether that's accurate or whether they're listed by mistake before referring your application to them.

I think your UKCAT score is too low for Dundee. You have a similar score to my son and he was rejected by Dundee as having a too low score.

That would make sense. I was very disappointed and hopefully will improve it this year. Did your son get invited to attend an interview at Dundee? I know some universities don’t consider UKCAT after interviews but Dundee might have an overall score that considers UKCAT as well and I would understand that.
