The Spoiler below is a Medicine Clearing experience / FAQ from @BlueSpikes dating from 2018. It is incredibly useful but some information could be outdated. Click on the Spoiler to read.

Important notice: it is no longer possible from 2020 onwards to use the UCAT from that same year for that year's Clearing.

oof looks like I am the first one here, and might need it but I hope not! :=)

I am not sure but for the unis in clearing above where {international students only} is not specified, could internationals apply to? For example Exeter, Aston, etc.

Well the first post says UCAS Extra starts 25th February and Clearing starts 6th July.

The bulk of Clearing activity will be around / a few days after Results Day though.

Read the first post ^^
Just to be totally clear ....
if waiting for a decision, an application ucas extra can't be made until the decisions are received? Unless withdrawn without knowing the outcome?
So if decisions aren't received till the end of March, it's a big a risk....

You can't go into UCAS Extra unless you have absolutely no offers / you have declined everything, so yes even if you are waiting you can't enroll in UCAS Extra.

Thanks, that's how I read it too. Just a shame you can't add an extra choice whilst in no-man's land!
does anyone know how Extra works( sorry if this covered elsewhere but I can't find it)?

I have 3 pre- interview rejections and no 4 is looking likely :frown:...UCAS says as I only put 4 choices I can't use Extra. feeling confused!

I think you need to have 4 rejections / hold no offers to be eligible for extra

Here's the thread for this year's Extra and Clearing: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6915438&p=93695730#post93695730

Thanks - and thanks everyone else for the helpful advice! Bit stressful but as I'm almost sure I'm going to hear bad news re my 4th choice, better to have a plan of action I think 😬😨!

Would you know the answer to this. Would not having put a 5th choice in the first place as opposed to putting and not accepting make one ineligible to go for extra. Theoretically if you applied only for four choices when you had five you don't need an "extra" application. But not fair on medics as they can put only four medicine.

You can pick an extra choice (now / when Extra opens) if you only selected 4 med schools.

@Headlesschicken If there is still any doubt suggest you specifically tag when you post. He's the expert on this topic (and others) to make sure he does not miss the question.
Hi @ecolier and thanks for all your help on this forum! The UCAS Extra website says in the FAQs if you have not used five choices due to applying for medicine etc then you can’t use Extra to pick an extra choice - you have to apply to the uni direct to check if any extra places and then call the UCAS call centre for advice - is this what you mean? Or do you mean apply for a fifth choice now (in anything:smile:) decline it, then be eligible for Extra? This seems like a lot of extra work for the unis so maybe I misunderstand? Thanks!

Yes this is what I mean :rofl:

It's a very convoluted way of getting into Extra.
