Hi, I was wondering roughly what grades are Lancaster willing to go down, during clearing?
For example, before clearing a course required an AAB BUT you get ABC or BBB.
At clearing it's obviously still requiring an AAB therefore, what's the likelihood of me getting in with an ABC or a BBB?
Thanks.

I would but I've not chose it as my firm or insurance. I've asked this as I might go during clearing as both my firm and insurance require higher grades, and just in case I don't meet them I want to go Lancaster.

Well the course I was looking at was Law. Is this likely in clearing?

I don't know - I think it tends to be pretty popular so maybe not.

Thanks for the tag and Lancaster were advertising Law vacancies at BBB in Clearing last year although they had filled the small amount of spaces they had by the end of A level results day. But please bear in mind that there is no guarantee that the same unis will be in Clearing this year

Warwick and Durham not in Clearing

Nottingham had a handful of places in "early clearing" at AAA or equivalent (plus LNAT) but by 10am on A level results day, it was International only
Birmingham AAA but places filled by 10am on A level results day
QMUL LLB vacancies at AAA
Sheffield LLB vacancies at AAA/AAB
Newcastle LLB ABB
Southampton LLB vacancies ABB (reportedly accepted BBC)
Cardiff .....ABB (reportedly lower) vacancies not published until A level results
Exeter vacancies for LLB at BBB (or BCC with Business) at Penryn
(those who missed their offer by even one grade got revised offer at Penryn)
Lancaster LLB vacancies BBB (at least one reported at BBC)
Queens Uni Belfast LLB ABC/BBB
Leicester uni LLB vacancies BBB, reportedly accepted ABD
Liverpool LLB only in early Clearing for those achieving around BBB/BBC
SOAS BBB/BBC
Surrey LLB vacancies at BBB/BBC
Sussex LLB vacancies at BBC
Kent LLB vacancies at BBC
Keele LLB vacancies at BBC
Sheffield Hallam BBC

This shows how much lower universities are accepting than their published offers.

Yes some of them are a bit surprising - I think it's a bit to do with the linear A levels being harder than the old modular ones so fewer people are getting the top grades but also there are fewer students applying to uni for demographic reasons. Students going into Clearing last year had lots of good options.

There are probably a number of reasons.
Brexit fewer EU applicants because of that.
Birth rate This has been dropping so fewer 18 year olds to go around.
Government policies The government got rid of the old caps and allowed universities to expand. The increased numbers going to some universities led to fewer applicants to fill places elsewhere.
Toughening up on grades This government policy reduced the numbers getting the highest grades in England. This reduces the number of top applicants hence forces the grades down.
Linear exams This is another reason.
