Nobody can say with any certainty as there are unknown factors. How strict will the marking be and how lenient will the universities be. If universities are more lenient with grades then there is likely to be fewer places in clearing. Already a number of universities have turned firm offers into unconditionals. The only known fact is that in past years most universities and courses were in clearing. What is also known from previous years is that only 9% exceed their predicted grades whilst 75% didnt achieve them. In past years most universities have accepted students with lower than their published grades so even though many had actual grades below the published requirement they got accepted but this year nobody really knows. If I was to guess I would think clearing will be likely but that is a personal feeling and dont rely on that. What offers are you holding for what subject and what grades do you think you will be given. You do have the option of declining all your offers and applying through ucas extra.
