Anyone know the likelihood of any russell groups, if so which universities, will have clearing places for law this year?

It is impossible to tell. Even the universities wont have any idea. Following last years Cags everything is totally different. Up to 2019 there was roughly 8% achieving A* and there would roughly be 1/2 dozen universities in clearing every year. In 2021 23% were given the A* grade. The result was that more students met their offers and most RG universities were oversubscribed so there was hardly anywhere in clearing. Nobody can tell what will happen with grades this year so it is impossible to predict what will be available in clearing.

Most top Law Unis never have places in Clearing for Law.
Its a prestige course and demands top grades.

Have you applied for Law this year?

As above, not even the unis themselves know what's going to happen this year.

All anyone can tell you is which unis had vacancies in Clearing last year, but that doesn't mean they will this year.

And last year will be a very poor guide, many unis were oversubscribed before Clearing even began.

True but I expect this year to be oversubscribed too with 30,000 students deferring their place last year- according to the Times, "the highest figure in a decade" who also reported that "Universities have seen a 21 per cent increase in the number of 18-year-olds from the UK deferring their degrees, according to the latest figures from Ucas".

I wonder how many of those had an incentive to defer…

(Oddly, we didn’t see a huge number of deferrals in 2020. Other than incentives, I’m not sure what made the difference if those figures are accurate.)
