Hi @StudentNK_! Clearing can really vary year on year because it depends on factors like how many spaces are left on each course, how many people met the entry requirements to get onto the course, etc. Therefore it's hard to predict which unis will have courses available in clearing.

Clearing opens on 5th July (though you can't apply via clearing if you don't already have your results. If you're studying now, you'll have to wait until A-level results day to make any clearing applications) so any research you can do would start from July onwards🙂

Hope this helps!

Something like 90% of courses end up in clearing every year. Some like Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, LSE and a few others dont enter clearing at all. Others only offer limited courses but the vast majority of universities will have some or all courses in clearing every year. Which ones and what courses change every year depending on the numbers applying. The best way to get some idea is to check which universities and courses are available through extra now. Most available will end up in clearing. It is unlikely those not in extra now will end up in clearing.

How do I apply to the courses through 'extra now' so that i am equipped in the future for when results come through. How do i apply for extra now and when is this available to do so? thank you
Extra is available now but to be able to use it you have to be holding no offers and that is also the case for clearing. It isnt a case of having your cake and eating it. It is meant for people with no offers so you would need to decline all your offers.

What you can do now is to check ucas course search and filter on showing courses available. That will tell you what is currently available to you . You then need to ring any university that interests you to check they still have places as sometimes they havent been removed.
To use Extra UCAS, you need to123:

1.

Find a course you're interested in.

2.

Use the UCAS search tool to find courses that have places available in Extra.

3.

Contact the university or college directly to make sure that it will consider you and to ask any questions you might have.

4.

Once you have confirmation from your uni of choice that they will consider you, apply for the new course in Ucas Hub.

5.

Wait for the uni or college to consider your application.

According to ucas course search Birmingham, Cardiff, Exeter, Liverpool, Manchester, Queen Mary, Southampton, Sheffield and York are the RG universities with vacancies and there are other equally good universities such as Lancaster. You need to ring the university you are interested in and speak to them to confirm they have vacancies and whether they will consider you. You would need to get rid of your current choices before you can apply. You can only apply to 1 at a time. If they reject you or you dont wish to go there you can apply elsewhere. You dont have an insurance choice if you use extra.
