If you've used all five choices on your application, and you're not holding any offers, you could still find a place using Extra – it's free!

How to use Extra

If you've used all five choices and are not holding any offers, you might be able to add another choice.

Extra is another chance for you to gain a place at university or college, between 25 February and 4 July. If you used all five of your choices on your original application and you’re not holding an offer, you’ll be able to add another choice using Extra.

Who can use Extra?

If you included five choices on your application, have received decisions from all five, and weren’t accepted, or if you declined the offers you received, you will be able to use Extra.

If you did not use all your choices in your initial application, you can just add another choice in Track, as long as it’s before 30 June, and you’ve not accepted or declined any offers. Remember, if you originally only applied to one choice and want to add more, you’ll be asked to pay the extra £6 application fee in Track.

If you don’t hold any offers after 5 July, you will be able to add an additional choice using Clearing.

How do you add more choices in Extra?

Adding another choice using Extra is easy – here's how to do it in three simple steps:

  1. Search for courses with vacancies using our search tool.
  2. Get in touch with the university or college to check they are able to consider you.
  3. Add the details in Track.

For more details, take a look at our FAQs.

What happens next?

Once you have received the decision from the university or college, you just need to accept it in Track. If you accept the offer, you won't be able to apply to any more in Extra.

Make sure you reply to the offer by the date shown in Track, or your offer will be declined automatically.

If you decline the offer, or you don't get a decision within 21 days, you can add another choice. It might take universities and colleges longer than 21 days to reply – they have until midnight on 12 July to make their decisions, but it's up to you whether you want to wait or replace them with a different choice.

If you don't get the offer you want in Extra, don't worry – you can still use Clearing to add another choice.
