my son isn't holding any offers as his predicted grade in one of his subjects wasn't high enough to secure an offer from one of his preferred universities. He wants to study maths and is hoping for results in region of A*AB/AAB with A*/A in maths. His other A'level subjects are History and Chemistry . His aim is for a place at Birmingham, followed by Nottingham and Sheffield. As he isn't holding an offer (he rejected the 2 that he did get) should he still go through clearing tomorrow or adjustment , or both?

Adjustment is only available for applicants with a firm offer that they have met AND exceeded. If your son isn't holding offers then he is already in Clearing and will be able to contact universities on the phone to apply for clearing places tomorrow when he has his results

Hello Lisa!

If your son has not received an offer from his chosen university and declined all of his other offers then applying through clearing would be the path for himself to university this year. It is essentially a period of time where a student can apply to a university directly rather than through UCAS.

He could inquire about information and spaces on courses at other universities today if he would like without starting an application. If he wished to go to a university outside of his offers then he will need to contact the university with the intention to apply and release himself into clearing via the 'release' button on his UCAS profile.

I hope this helps.
