UCAS Adjustment and Clearing Vacancies


UCAS Adjustment Process

Each year some applicants pass their exams with better results than expected. This may mean that some will have not only met the conditions of their firm choice, but will have exceeded them. The Adjustment Process provides such applicants with an opportunity to reconsider where and what to study.

The Adjustment Process is available from A-level results day (18 August) until 31 August. Your individual Adjustment period starts on 18 August or when your conditional firm (CF) choice changes to unconditional firm (UF), whichever is later. From this time you have a maximum of five calendar days (five 24-hour periods, including Saturdays and Sundays) to register and secure an alternative course, if you decide this is what you want to do. Remember, you must have met and exceeded the conditions of your conditional firm (CF) choice. It is not possible to adjust your insurance choice (CI).

You should not register for Adjustment if you wish to change to another course within Queen’s. This is handled using the Enquiry Form as outlined in the procedure to request a change of course.
