I find that this does not make sense. Most universities have a reserve list to fill in gaps. How is it possible for Keele University to be on clearing even with a reserve list?

Because they remain open to exceptional candidates or it is out of date? Ask Keele?

I think they are trying to grab some better candidates from clearing if possible

Last year they gave preference to those that had already applied, but that could be the case also.

A lot of people on the reserve list would take offers with someone else opening up places. A lot of people might go with a different offer based on their results leaving spaces at the university.

Some unis leave space specifically for clearing and I believe this is in case people couldn’t get offers due to predicted grades and then got the entry requirements. Or something along those lines.

To see if they can get someone better.
