UK clearing as an American Student

Hi,
I’m applying to university in London and have offers. My firm choice is City and second choice is university of Westminster. I’m just wondering if I don’t meet the requirements, what would happen. If I got a 443 on my AP exams is it likely that city will let me in through clearing. And in general, for clearing, do UK unis often let Americans in on a lower base. I’m trying to get a feel for my chances in clearing.
Thanks!

You wouldn’t use clearing for your firm/insurance choice.
When you send your results your firm choice has the option to accept you with lower grades.
Have you spoken to city (either admissions or the international team) about what normally happens for your course if applicants don’t meet their offer conditions. They’ll often be able to explain whether there is usually some flexibility.

City, SOAS, QMUL, Royal Holloway and Goldsmiths were all in Clearing last year for Law and many other subjects. But grades still demanded for Law entry were ABB to BBB. But I wonder which course at City you want to study? 😧

My first choice would be civil engineering but if the requirements are too high my second choice would be international politics!

You should consider doing the FOUNDATION year at City too perhaps? 🙂

I am anticipating at least a BBB or BBC and also how can you see what clearing scores you need for each subject

That information often isn’t made public and when it is it will only be available on A level results day.

How should I go about that, should I call or email?
