Notes

*This number goes down as the number of placed applicants goes up. Some applicants in this unplaced group will not have met their offer conditions, others will have received no offers earlier in the year, and some have chosen not to accept any offers.

The final date for applications this year is 20 September. Applicants can then add Clearing choices until 23 October, if they choose to. Almost 65,000 applicants were placed through Clearing by the end of the 2016 cycle.

Students who would like advice about the range of options available can call the Exam Results Helpline on 0808 100 8000.

UCAS’ daily Clearing analysis reports look at country of domicile and institution, as well as age, sex, and background (POLAR3 and SIMD) of applicants, and the subjects and types of institution (tariff group) they have been accepted to. These updates will be published for the next ten working days, until 1 September. Our End of Cycle Report for 2017 will be published in December, and will assess the full admissions year, including final applicant and acceptance totals.


About UCAS

UCAS is a charity and is the UK's shared admissions service for higher education. We manage applications from around 700,000 applicants each year for full-time undergraduate courses at over 380 universities and colleges across the UK.

The final applicant and acceptance totals for the cycle will be published in December, in our End of Cycle Report.

In Scotland, there is a substantial section of provision that is not included in UCAS' figures. This is mostly full-time higher education provided in further education colleges, which represents around one third of young full-time undergraduate study in Scotland, and this proportion varies by geography and background in Scotland.

Accordingly, the statistics on UCAS acceptances in these data resources reflect only that majority of full-time undergraduate study that uses UCAS Undergraduate.

From the 2015 cycle onwards, applications to postgraduate teacher training programmes in Scotland were included in the UCAS Undergraduate admissions scheme, previously these were recruited through UCAS Teacher Training. In 2015, around 120 courses at providers in Scotland moved into the UCAS Undergraduate scheme, estimated to represent around 2,000 acceptances, mostly aged 21 or over. Comparisons between 2016 and 2014 (or earlier cycles) will be affected by this change.
