Before registering for Adjustment
If you are eligible to use Adjustment, please consider these points before you register:
- Adjustment is entirely optional, and not everyone will want to try to find an alternative place. Nothing really beats the careful research you did before you made your application to find the right courses for you.
- There is no guarantee there will be any vacancies on the course you decide you want to be considered for, and it is very unlikely that the most competitive courses will have any places available. If you are in this situation you may wish to re-apply for the following year, so that you can be considered for all courses. If other applicants decide to move places, the vacancy situation may change on a daily basis.
- Before deciding to use Adjustment, you must also consider non-academic arrangements such as accommodation and student finance. These may be difficult to secure or there may be delays if changes are made at short notice. You should contact your UF choice if you are concerned about arrangements that you have made with them.
- Talk to a careers adviser or Connexions adviser at your school, college or local careers office. They can help you decide whether to register to use Adjustment.
- If you register to use Adjustment, the university or college will check that your results were higher than those you needed to meet the conditions of your firm choice. Please make sure you understand exactly what this means. View examples of exceeding and not exceeding your offer
- You may contact more than one university or college to discuss vacancies, but you will only receive one formal decision through Adjustment.
- If you have not received an alternative offer through UCAS before your Adjustment period ends, you will revert back to your original place.
