Article excerpt

You can use clearing if you haven't yet applied to study in 2018, if you aren't holding any offers at a university or college, or if your exams haven't gone as planned and you haven't secured a place you were holding.

WHEN CAN I USE CLEARING? It's available from July to September. If you already have your exam results but you have no offers, you can use Clearing from July.
