1.191. Clearing begins on the day the A Level results are released in August, applicants may be considered before the official start date but no offers will be made before this time.

1.192. The decision whether to make an offer to such an applicant will depend upon various factors such as:

i. Possession of qualifications suitable for entry.

ii. Whether qualifications held are sufficient for entry.

iii. The number of offers accepted as firm/insurance in relation to places available on particular programmes and the consequent likelihood of vacancies.

iv. Whether the applicant is eligible for the University’s Alternative Entry System.

1.193. Interest may also be expressed in programmes of study by applicants who do not have a current application in UCAS.  Such applicants may already have qualifications or be awaiting results.  Suitable applicants may be admitted to programmes of study by use of UCAS Records of Prior Acceptance (RPAs) provided that an unconditional offer can be made.
