It's not too late to use UCAS Extra

Have you used all five choices but not holding any offers? You may be able to apply for more using Extra! If you’re not sure how to use it then we’ve got it covered in this short blog post.

When can I use Extra?
If you’ve used all five choices and don’t hold any offers, you can use Extra up until 4 July. If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible or not, sign in to Track to check your status. If you have an option to Add Extra Choice then you’re in Extra.

Where can I check for vacancies?

All course vacancies will be listed in our search tool. When you search for a course you’ll have a selection of filters down the left hand side. Make sure you click on the option Only show courses with vacancies to narrow down your search.

Once you’ve found a course you’re interested in, it’s still worth giving that uni or college a quick call to make sure they have vacancies and will consider your application.

Course vacancies are updated all the time by the unis, so it’s worth keeping an eye on our search tool.

When will the uni make a decision?

When you apply through Extra the uni or college has until 13 July to make a decision. Once they’ve made a decision you’ll receive an email to check Track.

If you’re offered a place, you must reply by 20 July otherwise your offer will be declined automatically.
