It depends on a lot of things- such as how many spaces are available, how well other people have done, how much they like other areas of your application. Usually unis will be lenient by 1 or 2 grades, but in some cases they will go much lower to fill less popular courses.

Unis are more likely to be lenient with someone who has firmed and committed to the uni than an applicant in clearing.

BTW, you are only in clearing if your university reject you (or you choose to be placed in clearing)- if you miss your offer but the uni accept you, you're not in clearing. If they reject you, they won't give you a place via clearing.
