FAQ: When does Clearing start?

When does Clearing start?

For 2017, Clearing will officially start on 1st of July 2017, however, most universities won’t start even thinking about Clearing until Results Day. Some universities will allow you to start early, but this is a little unlikely given a number of people that may be expected to go through Clearing that year. Clearing will officially close on 22nd of October 2017. The days can also depend on what day the A-Level Results Day falls on to and when the Scottish National Highers falls onto, too.
