If you manage to surpass your predicted grades and attain 3 A* , what is the likelihood of being accepted to a university such as imperial college london or any of the other Russel group universities if I were to apply through clearing or adjustment?

Very unlikely for Imperial. For most courses they have more than enough qualified students. They dont enter into clearing every year and are unlikely to accept anybody from adjustment if it goes ahead. It might be different for some other Russell Group universities.

There’s plenty of less selective RG unis, (although I would not fixate on getting into one as the distinction is fairly meaningless). It really depends on the course more than anything.

We’ve got several courses where we’ll quite happily take anyone with a pulse who can sign their own name. It doesn’t necessarily mean it would be a good destination for you though.

Problem is, most RG unis won't have spaces by the time you get to Clearing. A few usually have some spaces e.g Liverpool, Southampton, Cardiff, York. the rest hardly ever have any wriggle room. It also depends on what subject you want to study, if it's a popular one the more likely non of the RGs will be in Clearing.

This isnt true. In a typical year most RG universities have been in clearing. Imperial, LSE, UCL, Oxford, Cambridge and Durham arent but most others do but for not all their courses. This year was the exception due to massive grade inflation because Teacher Assessed Grades were far more generous than exam years. Nobody knows what will happen this year.

What Happens on Results Day : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/res...el-results-day

Btw, this year is likely to see more nuanced offer making by all top Unis in order that they dont get caught out if lockdowns etc mean another year of over-inflated grades. With all of this in play, there is no way of predicting what will happen re. Clearing.

Most RG universitiies have courses in clearing every year and even competitive courses like Law end up in clearing in some universities. This year was the exception because teachers markings were far too lenient and there was no moderation. 3 times the numbers got A* this year because of it and there were few places in clearing because of it. In a normal year with normal marking there are always courses available in 3/4 of RG universities

However, we have no idea if the situation will return to anything resembling 2019.
We may know closer to the summer but at the moment its looking like it could easily be another high-grade year.

Pre- pandemic Clearing data isn't going to help this cohort.

Nobody knows how things are going to work out. It is highly unlikely that grades will be given like confetti this year either given the problems that caused universities
