How to add courses
If you didn't use five choices you can add more in Track:
- if it's before 30 June and you've not accepted or declined your offers
- as long as you originally only applied to one choice and you pay the extra £11 in Track to add more
If you've used five choices you may be able to use Extra if:
- you've received decisions from all five course providers
- you weren't accepted or you decided to decline any offers you received
How do you add more?
It's a free service called Extra – open between 25 February and 3 July. If it's available to you it'll show up as a button when you log in to track your application.
- Search for courses with Extra availability (and opt in to UCAS Media mailings if you'd like to get emails from universities and colleges with vacancies remaining).
- Maybe think about related or alternative subjects.
- Get in touch with the university or college to check they can consider you.
- Then add the details in Track.
If you do consider Extra, please note you can only apply to one course at a time, meaning you'll not be able to have an insurance choice.
What happens next?
Then if you're offered a place you want you just need to accept it in Track.
- Make sure you reply by the date shown in Track.
- And then you'll be committed to that course so you can't apply to any more in Extra.
Or you can add another choice – either if you decline the offer or you don't get a decision within 21 days, you can then add a different choice. It might occasionally take universities/colleges longer than 21 days to reply – if so it's up to you whether to wait or replace them with a different Extra choice.
Don't worry if you don't get an offer you want in Extra – you can check out Clearing to see if there are any other vacancies.
