    Just wondering, if you don’t meet the entry requirements for the university course requirements on UCAS clearing day, is it still possible to get on to the course even you don’t meet the requirements ??. I’m really really worried :rolleyes:

    Edit: I think im going to be short around 70 ucas points for the course without the ucas clearing (so how possible will it be now to get on to the course) the course points itself is 260 ucas points.

    It depends on a variety of factors. If you do miss your offer, ring the university and see if they'll take you any way.

    Agreed, I mean, all you need to do is try. You never know, they may consider you, prior that you try your hardest in first year. Or due to background experience you had previously, but that is due to what course you are taking.
    My uni were asking me to get AAA at first, but instead I got AAB and I got in, due to experience. So don't be turned away on what the site of requirements say. Give it a try, you never know.
    Good Luck!

    It must depend on the popularity of the course and by how much you missed the offer. Here's what you can do, find last years clearance list, if your uni and course is on there i don't think you'll have to worry too much.

    Yes: and in particular some courses explicitly drop their offer requirements as soon as they enter clearing.

    Nobody can possibly tell you exactly what might happen. It depends on the uni, the course, the bits of your offer that you actually missed and how relevant they are, whether there is something else about your application that sets you apart from other applicants.... I could go on, but won't.

    I would suggest that you look at the Results/Clearing/Adjustment thread stickied at the top of this forum for links to articles you might find it helpful to read.
