Hi all!

I saw a post in one of these discussion that said for someone not to withdraw as you are far more likely to get a position from the waiting list than relying on Clearing / Extra. I was considering, as I already have my UCAS points, withdrawing and entering clearing on July 5th to try and secure a spot at UCLan Ambassador UCLan doing Paramedic science, however would it be far more beneficial for me to wait until the A-Level results day and see if I get an offer between now and that date, or just enter into Clearing straight away and try secure a space that way?

Thanks all!

Then you need to ring ucas and pay the additional fee to add more than one choice if you hope to use clearing.

even if uclan want to offer you a place from their waiting list you would need to pay the fee to take up that offer using clearing.

clearing offers are unconditional and so you won’t be considered for waiting list places or made any clearing offer until you have your results

So to enter into clearing I NEED to have more than one choice selected? I've got my results from college as I finished last year. I haven't seen that about needing more than one option for clearing before? I paid the £20+ fee to apply originally as well

To enter clearing or extra you need to be holding NO offers. If you have only applied to 1 choice you have paid a lower entry fee. To apply again through clearing you are applying twice so would need to apply for that and pay the higher fee,

Btw folks, 'waiting lists' only exist for certain subjects - typically Mediicine, Dentistry, Veterinary and some other healthcare courses/
BUT they are ONLY for those who
a) gave been interviewed for that course
b) were not made an offer
c) and have been emailed about a waiting list.
And even if you are asked to join a waitinng list, there is no guarantee at all that you will be phoned on Results Day.

Hi there!

Sorry this reply is coming to you a bit late, but I checked with colleagues and suggest that if you already have your results then it may be best to submit an application as Paramedic Science has a high demand of applicants, and the chances of any places at clearing are slim.

This is information I've been told, but if you have any further queries then please let me know!

Best of luck to you,
Josh
