    Hi there. Well i just had something that i wanted to ask. This year, Ucas is offering the a level students a new option where if they exceed their ( firm choice) offer, they can register for Adjustment where they contact other universities to see if they can get a place there with their grades. Well i was wandering, would this be applicable at oxford, especially for Chemistry course? I know oxbridge doesnt take part in clearing, but is it possible to get a place through this option?
    Thanks.
    i seriously doubt oxbridge are in adjustment. they only give one chance! :mad:

    Check out the Adjustment FAQ:

    I have not found an official Oxford Adjustment position.
    But I can't see it happening unless applicants applied to Oxford in the 08/09 cycle and were near miss candidates.

    But read the adjustment FAQ for my understanding of the situation.

    Nothing. If Oxford take anyone through Adjustment I will eat my hat.

    And I don't even wear a hat, so this is a wager which could involve considerable expense for me.
